Naira Maley was reported to have held a concert at Jabi Lake Mall on Saturday which is against the directives of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 (PTF).
The event was said to have had so many people gathering to party which gained the attention of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
According to the National Coordinator of the PTF, Dr. Sani Aliyu, he said the hip-hop star fate will be determined by the Federal Capital Territory Administration, adding that the PTF 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.”
And during the COVID-19 briefing, the Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Chikwe Ihekweazu said there is no actual plan that has been put in place to trace people who attended the concert.
Dr. Ihekweazu said: “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.”
