The Federal Government has tendered an apology to Nigerians for violation of the social distancing order during the burial of the late Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, in Abuja on Saturday.

Secretary to the Federation (SGF) and the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, tendered the apology on Monday during the daily briefing by the task force.

“The PTF recognises, regrettably, the unintentional violation of the principles and protocols that form the core of our message to Nigerians at the funeral of the late chief of staff,” the SGF said.

“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.”

Speaking on the late Kyari, Mustapha said: “He was fully committed to ensuring Nigeria responded effectively to the challenge of COVID-19 and he died in the line of duty.

“We will always remember his robust efforts, his dedication, and unwavering commitment to strengthening Nigeria’s capacity to manage the impact of this pandemic.”
