The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, has explained why the Canadian government denied the Nigerian carrier that was to evacuate stranded citizens from the North American nation.

Addressing the daily press conference of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 yesterday in Abuja, he stated that the airline was denied landing right owing to its non-possession of a licence to operate the commercial flight in that country.

Onyeama, however, said the Nigerian Ambassador to Canada was engaging the authorities to reverse the decision.

He pointed out that the argument being put forward by the envoy was that the plane is not a regular commercial flight to Canada to take passengers but an emergency one. Theguardianng
