The spreading coronavirus across the world is the reason behind the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) decision to suspend the earlier announced National Aviation Conference earlier scheduled for 1st to 4th April 2020, at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.
Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, the General Manager, Corporate Affairs in a statement said, “The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria hereby notifies stakeholders and the general public that the National Aviation Conference earlier scheduled for 1st to 4th April 2020, at the International Conference Centre, Abuja has been suspended. This is due to the need to adhere to safety precautions in the face of the coronavirus presently spreading across nations globally.
“The World Health Organization (WHO) recently declared COVID 19 a global pandemic and advised that as much as possible, individuals and organizations should avoid clustered gatherings to prevent the spread of the virus. A new date for the conference will be announced as soon as possible. She added that the authority regrets any inconvenience this postponement might have caused the proposed participants.
