FG Halts Evacuation Of 200 Nigerians From Canada by Islie: 12:29pm On May 13, 2020
By Vincent Ikuomola,

The Federal Government has cancelled the planned evacuation of 200 stranded Nigerians from Canada, The Nation has learnt.

The 200 were billed for evacuation on Wednesday.

In a statement on Monday, the Nigeria High Commission in Canada stated that an arrangement had been concluded with a local airline for the airlifting of the pasaangers.

But the exercise has been cancelled following the Federal Government announcement that subsequent evacuation of stranded Nigerians abroad would be staggered due to lack of accommodation for the mandatory 14 -day isolation of returness.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama had on Monday said the Presidential Taskforce (PTF) on Covid-19 had reached its saturation point following the evacuation of 678 Nigerians from United Arab Emirate (UAE), United Kingdom (UK) and United States ((U.S) in the last one week.

He said further airlifting would have to wait until the current returnees in isolation centre are discharged.

He said the accommodation available to PTF was 600 coupled with medical advice against overstreaching the personnel at the isolation facilities.

Owing to these, the Federal Government announced the airlifting of Nigerians from Canada has been cancelled with a new date to be announced.

The cancellation was confirmed by the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Ferdinald Nwoye.

He said: “The planned evacuation has been cancelled with no new date to be announced.”

But for the cancellation, it said the plane would have picked the prospective passengers from two locations in Toronto and Alberta.

According to the flight schedule, the aircraft was expected to pick the first set from the Pearson International Airport, Toronto.

From there, it was to fly to the Calgary International Airport, Alberta, a distance of 2,915 km, to load the second set of passengers.

The aircraft was to depart Alberta for the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja where the evacuees would be moved into isolation for 14 days.

The one-way flight will cost each prospective evacuee between $1,130 (N452,000) and $2,000 (N800,000) depending on the class.

The special evacuation exercise began on Wednesday with the return of 265 Nigerians from the United Arab Emirates.

On Friday, 253 were brought back from the United Kingdom, followed by 160 from the United States on Sunday.

This brings to 678 the total number of Nigerians evacuated by the Federal Government so far.

Lord, my heart and prayers go out to all those being affected by the Coronavirus. Bring healing and comfort to those who have fallen ill. May they be strengthened and brought back to full health.

Bless the hands and minds of those searching for a vaccine or cure. Give them success. Guide the leaders around the world that they be filled with wisdom to lead their countries out of this medical and financial crisis.

Thank you, Lord, that your love has been poured out in my heart by the Holy Spirit who lives in me. I declare that I am blessed, made whole and set apart for your use.

This is the day You have made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. Father, You are wonderful and glorious and through You, I am able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that I ask or think or even dare to imagine according to the power that works in me.

A thousand may fall at my side, ten thousand at my right hand, but nothing will harm me. In the name of Jesus, I thank You for keeping me safe! So Be It, Amen!

But this people will pay the isolation centre cost themselves.

How is it now hard to provide a place even if is average cost hotel?

The total cost should be made available to the evacuees and they can decide if they can afford it.

That way everyone get airlifted without unnecessary burden to the government.

That is what China did. Anyone coming in will be placed under compulsory isolation at designated centres with cost borne by each individual for 14 days.
