Sanusi said that the aircraft would henceforth be at the disposal of the Presidential Task Force for the Control of Coronavirus in Nigeria, headed by the Secretary to the Federal Government of Nigeria (SGF), Boss Mustapha.

The Aero CEO urged well-meaning individuals; corporate organizations and others to support the government to overcome this pandemic, which is resetting the world.

He commended the efforts the federal government is making so far in the fight against the pandemic and urged that Nigerians should abide by the rules to get themselves protected from the scourge.
