Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has directed its staff who recently travelled abroad to self-isolate for 14 days.
The order was contained in a new guideline to protect the workforce from the coronavirus spread. Also, all pending inspections, training and various exchange programmes involving foreign trips are suspended.
The General Manager, Public Relations, Sam Adurogboye, said the aviation regulatory body had compiled details of all NCAA staff already on official assignments or trainings to a country where there is community transmission of Covid-19.
“It is to be forwarded to the Office of the Director General and the General Manager, Aero Medical Standards.
“To complement all these, the authority had also directed that the 2020 promotion exercise for staff scheduled to hold on April 4, 2020 be suspended till further notice. This postponement is in line with advice given by the World Health Organisation (WHO) for organisations to avoid large gatherings as part of precautionary measures to curb spread of the virus.
“NCAA wishes to enjoin all travelling public and other stakeholders to comply with all the directives issued to curb the spread of the global pandemic,” Adurogboye said.
