The National Aviation Conference scheduled to take place between April 1 and 4, at the International Conference Centre, Abuja has been suspended, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) says on Tuesday.
The national conference is suspended due to the spread of Coronavirus across the globe. According to a statement by Henrietta Yakubu, FAAN’s spokesperson, the suspension became necessary in order to adhere to safety precautions.
“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,” FAAN said Tuesday morning.
“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 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,” Mrs Yakubu said.
