Coronavirus: Reps Reject Move To Evacuate Nigerians From China by sarrki(m): 2:51pm On Feb 04
The House of Representatives on Tuesday rejected a call for the evacuation of Nigerians from China as coronavirus spreads from the country to other parts of the world.

The Chairman of the House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Mr Benjamin Kalu, had moved a motion praying that Nigerians stranded in China over the health crisis be brought back to their home country.

The lawmakers, however, voted against consideration of the motion.

Several efforts made by the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, to make the lawmakers listen to the content of the motion proved abortive.

No matter how caring people will rush to condemn the lawmakers, the truth remains that deep within, 99.489% of Nigerians don't want them back to avoid Coronavirus in Nigeria.

That's the truth.

What would it take to certify they are not infected, then quarantine them in safe locations..

These are the little things that makes one patriotic to their country..

Is pathetic how China has fallen (temporary) due to this corona virus that seems to be a plot (biowar) against her thriving economy, ( Wuhan @ the very heart of China). A lot of investors have taken to their heels. I pray they come out strong.

BTW this has nothing to do with the animals they eat in China, as we also have a lot of Chinese restaurants in Nigeria.

This seems to be the work of some Crazy scientist genius who has gone mad with experimentation.

May God save the Nigerians over there as they are part of us, only trying to escape the harsh condition in Nigeria.

Hmmm. Let them stay there o. Evacuating them means spreading the epidemic freely in Nigeria as we don't have the capacity to control or manage spread.

Those are Executive functions shocked shocked
If the Presidency review the situation and consider to evacuate Nigerians from China GMB doesn't need those noises to get it done shocked shocked
However, It's a very sensitive issue that must be encouraged by the Chinese government considering the Nigeria/China relationship.
My fears are the projects under construction by Chinese government here cos Naija official don see "already made" excuses grin

Nigerians in Wuhan and other parts of China shouldn't be allowed to return to Nigeria for now as we don't have the means to tackle the virus!

As an underdeveloped nation, it is unwise to allow them back. I recall how we tackled the Ebola virus, infected persons had to run away from their homes for FEAR OF BEING QUARANTINED!

We are still battling Lassa infection right now and we can't even tackle it properly.
