By Olawale Ajimotokan

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has declared that it would no longer be possible for domestic flight operations to resume on June 21 following the closure of airports to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country.

The Director Geberal of NCAA,Capt Musa Nuhu, made the disclosure on Thursday at the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 press briefing in Abuja.

Musa, who stood in for the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, at the briefing, said that it would be disastrous for the country and aviation industry to do otherwise.

He added that NCAA would announce a specific date of resumption after proper appraisal of the situation and meeting with stakeholders.

He said a new date would be announced by the end of the month.
