COVID-19: Senate Raises Alarm, Says FG Not Doing Enough

The Nigerian Senate has criticized the federal government of not doing enough preventive measures as regards the Coronavirus spread in Nigeria.

Speaking at the plenary on Thursday, Prof. Ajayi Borofice representing Ondo North senatorial district, said unlike the South Africa where adequate measures are taken to prevent the spread, the federal government according to him is not doing enough to prevent the dreaded disease in Nigeria.

He, however advised the federal government to up the ante to the preventive measures.

He said; “ Mr. President, when we got to the South Africa airport, we were not allowed to leave the aircraft for about 30minutes. The military corps came into the aircraft and screened everybody. But when we got to the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport here in Abuja, the Nigerian officials just gave us a sheet of paper to fill if we are sick or not. Where we can be traced to in case of emergency and other funny questions. Who will be trailing who?” He asked.

Meanwhile, the National Economic Council has allayed fears about the spread of Coronavirus into the country.

Briefing newsmen after the meeting in Abuja, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said there was no cause for alarm, adding that all those that have been screened have tested negative.

On Lassa fever, he said seventy per cent of the disease is in Ebonyi, Edo and Ondo states.

Giving the statistics, Sanwo-Olu said about 70 cases were recorded with 13 deaths.

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.

    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see
    if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has
    83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into
    starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks

    much more helpful than ever before.
