“We are aware that his initial plans to sneak out of the country was frustrated by the Minister of Aviation who prevented him and some other state Governors from traveling out of the Country.

“The truth is that, sneaking out at this period when he is expected to put all precautionary measures in place to contain the rapid spread of the novel zoonotic COVID-19 pandemic in the State is the height of wickedness and insensitivity on the side of the Governor.
