The Federal Government, through the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, has apologised to Nigerians for violating the social distancing order they put in place to help curb the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic at late Abba Kyari’s funeral.
The Federal Government had come under heavy criticism at the hands of Nigerians for not leading by example, when dignitaries at Abba Kyari’s funeral in Abuja, paid no heed to the social distancing order they put in place, with many calling on the authorities to apologise to actress, Funke Akindele, who was incarcerated for breaking same law at a party she threw for her husband.
The transcript read: “The Presidential Task Force (PTF) recognises regrettably the unintentional violation of the principles and protocols that form the core of our messages to Nigerians at the funeral of the late Chief of Staff.”
”These principles for emphasis include the guidance provided on mass gatherings, social distancing, personal hygiene and restriction of movement.”
”Lessons have been learnt and appropriate measures have been taken to close all gaps.”
