Presidency Orders National Assembly Members Who Returned From Abroad To Get Tested For Coronavirus

National Assembly
Members of the national assembly who recently returned to the country from abroad have been directed  to report themselves at the nearest test centre of Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to be tested for coronavirus.
This was conveyed to the leadership of the national assembly in a letter written by Abba Kyari, Chief of Staff to the President.
According to him, the directive became necessary as some of the returnees had refused being tested at the airports.
Kyari noted in the letter that “airport screenings are our primary line of defense and refusal by any citizen to subject to these tests is a threat to our nation.”
A copy of the letter addressed to Olufemi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of House of Representatives, sighted by The ICIR,  urged the speaker to direct such members of the House to report themselves for test.
“Accordingly, you are kindly requested to direct all members of the House of Representatives who returned to Nigeria from foreign trips to report themselves to the nearest NCDC test centre with immediate effect,” Kyari wrote.
