Nigerian Presidency had the golden opportunity to lock down all their airports to prevent this virus from coming in since February, but No, they were waiting for their Daughters and sons to come in first with the Virus.

Look at how we've exposed ourselves. These greedy old men know that they don't like to pay doctors salary and if pandemic like this happens we are all in trouble.
