According to the Governor, the impact of the closure of the airports on the state’s economy, has been significant.
Recall that the Federal Government shut all international airports in the country on March 23, before it later extended the closure to all airports in the country.
The governor also lamented that the entertainment, hospitality and transportation sectors, has also been “significantly” affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
