COVID-19 Test Is Free At Government Labs - Sanwo-olu Aides by Despirado121(m): 1:18pm On Jan 06
Senior Special Assistant to the Lagos state governor on Health matters, Oreoluwa Finnih, has come out to state that COVID19 testing is free in Lagos state government-owned hospitals, Igbere TV reports.

She came out to make the clarification after some Nigerians who came in from Dubai stated on Twitter that they were made to pay N45, 000 for the test that was never carried out.

Reacting to the allegations via her Twitter handle, Finnih said the tests are free at the state government hospitals for patients with the symptoms but those who are traveling out or into the state are expected to pay for the test.

Her tweets read;
“Sooo I'm seeing orisirisi on the timeline. Covid-19 testing is free, at the government labs... if you have symptoms of covid. If you're travelling out or in you need to pay. If you're travelling in you need to have taken a test maximum 96 hrs before you return.

“You also need to pay for a repeat test that you'll take 7 days after arrival. The reason is simple... Incubation. You're supposed to isolate for the 7 days after arrival then test before you mingle. Things can change between test 1 and test 2.

“There are very few countries that will test willy-nilly. No one can afford it, PCR testing is incredibly expensive. It's best we abide by laid down guidelines which are for the public good and safety. Belly aching solves nothing,” she tweeted.

Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on New Media, Gawat Jubril, also said,
“Covid Testing for people showing symptoms and require treatment, is FREE in Lagos State. Both Treatment and testing.”

Free?

In Lagos?

Lagos Govt using the plandemic for revenue raising purposes!

How many people have complained of taking the test within hours of flying only to land in Naijeria to undertake another test?

Nigeria has two constitution: Written constitution which is the official one used when the issue at hand concerns the masses and The Unwritten constitution which is the unofficial parallel one utilised when the matter concerns the elites.



Please also note that Nigeria also has two government ; The elected officials and the employed/appointed cabals.


In the case of the second point, the powers of the latter supersede the former.


So can someone please tell Sanwo Olu to off mic and pass the mic to a representative of the government health officials to look us in the eyes and tell us that the test is free.

Lol. This is the biggest joke I've read today.

In Lagos, private hospitals and labs already took over.

Government staff in hospitals refer their patients to private labs for rebate. This is the 100% truth.
So even if it's free, I'll see that as an unwritten constitution that will always been violated.
