According to report reaching oyogist.com, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has called on the federal government to place a restrictions on international flights coming into Nigeria.

This was made known by MURIC Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, in a statement issued on Thursday. He stated that the the predicted second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic might be more dangerous and severe.

Prof. Akintola noted that the Nigeria Authorities shouldn’t allow the Covid-19 pandemic take a second wave turn in Nigeria, while citing the increase and continuous spread of the disease in the major countries of the world.


“Nigeria should not allow a return of the deadly pandemic. In view of the increase in its spread in the United States, France, Britain, etc, the Federal Government should act now before it is too late.”

“International passengers troop into the country on a daily basis and there has been no report of quarantines. All passengers have been allowed to come into the country. We believe this is not good enough,” Prof. Akintola stated.

It should be noted that the Covid 19 pandemic which has plagued the world, had hit the world economy so hard to an extent that many countries of the world are now going on recession and companies folding up.
