Way to go... Abba Kyari should please inform Mallam President to shut down all borders. Kyari needs to read online comments in the ears of the Mallam.

FG should look at the borders too. Some countries have closed theirs. We should be considering restrictions from the countries with major outbreaks

I don't see any reason why they should postpone the event. Or maybe, its because Edo government refused to award the media rights of the competition to NTA.
