The Peoples Democratic Party has issued a 48-hour ultimatum to the Federal Government to divulge the location of the Chinese doctors brought to help healthworkers in the fight against Coronavirus.
This comes after Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, declared being oblivious of the whereabouts of the Chinese team despite protests by the Nigerian Medical Associations and others.
The opposition party made this demand in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan, on Saturday.
He said, the minister’s statement had heightened fears that the Chinese, whose identity and activities had been shrouded in secrecy, might have been brought in by some people for another purpose.
The statement read in part, “The party described as suspicious, creepy and weird that the minister of health, who had repeatedly assured (Nigerians) that the Chinese were brought to render medical services and training, and even went to receive them at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, on April 8 in an elaborately publicised event can no longer account for the team.’’
