Former lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Dino Melaye, has frowned at the request for Chinese Doctors in Nigeria.
The Chinese doctors are to help in fighting Coronavirus in Nigeria. Before now, POLITICS NIGERIA reported how resident doctors and the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) condemned this move.
“We reject in totality the request of the federal government to the Chinese government for assistance of their doctors to help in fighting the Coronavirus surge”, a statement by Lagos Council of NLC read.
On Monday, the Speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, met with Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, over the plan.
However, on Tuesday, Mr Melaye took to Twitter to express his displeasure over the invitation.
“PMB please stop the invitation of Chinese Doctors to Nigeria. Our Doctors are doing well in the circumstance.”
“Let them go to countries with escalating cases of Corona. If they come and there is an outrageous increase in cases, we will hold the FG and minister of Health responsible”, he wrote on Twitter.
