The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has slammed popular musician, Azeez Fashola, alias Naira Marley over Saturday event held in Abuja despite the ban on large gatherings amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Bittertruth Media recalls that Naira Marley had held a concert at the Jabi Lake Mall on Saturday in contravention of the PTF directive geared towards curbing the spread of the virus.
The event, which had a lot of people in attendance, has come under intense criticisms lately.
While condemning the action of the musician, the PTF National Coordinator, Sani Aliyu, said that the Federal Capital Territory Administration will take the decision on whether to penalise the artiste or not.
He said, “With regards to the fate of Naira Marley, I believe the FCT authorities have already taken action – with regards to the chief organisers.
“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 measures taken against people who continue to violate the guidelines we have put in place, particularly if they are putting public health at risk.”
