After many calls from the public to deal with singer, Naira Marley, The Presidential Task Force has finally reacted to it
Recall that over the weekend singer Naira Marley and Kimoprah jetted out from Lagos to Abuja for a show
Organized by Playnetwork and held at the Silverbird Entertainment Centre in Jabi Lake Mall
This show has so far lead to the closing down indefinitely of Jabi Lake mall
and the suspension of the private jet company, who brought Naira Marley to Abuja
Regardless of these move, nothing seems to have touched both Naira Marley, Kimoprah and the organizers
Thereby calling for immediate action to be taken against them
Well the Presidential task force has said that the issue has been handed over to the FCT minister
The National Coordinator of the PTF, Dr. Sani Aliyu,
addressed the development on Monday during the daily COVID-19 briefing.
Aliyu said Naira Marley’s fate, will be determined by the Federal Capital Territory Administration.
He added that the Presidential Task Force supports any sanction against the musician.
“With regards to the fate of Naira Marley,
I believe the FCT authorities have already taken action
with regards to the chief organizers.
“But the decision on whether or not he will face penalties etc
is actually a decision of the FCT authorities.
“The PTF will always support any measure taken against people
who continue to violate the guidelines we have put in place,
particularly if they are putting public health at risk.”
Furthermore, The Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Chikwe Ihekweazu,
says there are no plans to trace those who attended the concert.
“On the plan whether we are going to track the people
that came for the Naira Marley concert, no.
We have a lot more important work to do than to do that,
but if we have a positive from that community, we have a problem.
“We do have a problem if we have someone
that went to that gathering and turns positive.
We hope that doesn’t happen.”
