BREAKING: “We did not invite Chinese Doctors” – Minister of Health


Nigeria’s minister of health, Dr Osagie Ehanire has said that the Nigerian government did not invite the Chinese doctors who came into the country a few days ago to help with the fight against COVID-19.

Politics Nigeria gathered that 15 Chinese doctors flew into Nigeria on the invitation of a Chinese construction company, CCECC, hoping to help the Nigerian government battle the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Speaking in a recent interview of Channels TV, Ehanire revealed that the Nigerian government did not bring in the doctors as widely speculated. In his words;

“I think in the first place we didn’t bring them in, I think the Company (CCECC) in its own wisdom and probably in its own corporate social responsibility thought they should bring people in to come and help us and advice.”

“We didn’t issue any invitation but we are not unhappy that they are here because we can learn from their experience. These people have been through it, we want to start with a video conferencing with them even while they are isolation so that we can try to learn from their experiences.”

“There is nothing better than learning from someone who has actually suffered an event and been inflicted with an injury.”

“So there are people who as specialized doctors and nurses. What we can learn from then we learn but the company in its own wisdom thought we could benefit from this kind of initiative. We didn’t really ask for it, in fact, we didn’t know that this whole gift was coming from the company. We appreciate it nevertheless.”

  1. I think the minister of health’s comment is insensitive, how can a whole minister say a thing like” we are not aware of their coming, is just a gift from the company ” Chinese people are coming into your country for such a mission and you tell us the federal government is not aware? This is stupid! If you the leaders have been bribed to kill us,you will die first. We don’t want any Chinese, this is a failed plan already,send them back,we do not need this gift at this time,they are a more bigger threat than the virus itself.

    1. So far you didn’t send for them, why haven’t you sent them back since. There is nothing they can offer more than our indigenous medical team have been doing.

  2. it’s time all leaders and Nigerians start to think right because whatever you do now is a seed, if it doesn’t affect you now it will wait and affect your children and children’s children’s. it’s in the bible and conran, I know that this doesn’t mean nothing to you, you always think about yourself.
    The benefits we are enjoying in Europe today where structured and done by their four fathers.

  3. Why ? Nigeria, Why?

    Are you so desperate for money that you leaders would allow a company to bring in the very people who started this pandemic in the first place?

    Why are you so stupidly trusting the Chinese at this time? Where is the money to pay for their so-called aid of contaminated equipment and medication?

    Nigeria,WAKE UP!!! PLEASE!!! We do not have a long enough spoon to sup with the devil you have allowed into the country.
