The People ’s Democratic Party (PDP) gave the federal government a 48-hour ultimatum to present the whereabouts of the Chinese medical team allegedly brought in to help fight the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
In a statement by its spokesperson Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP stated that its position was based on the shocking statement of the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, that he could not explain what was brought into the country from China The whereabouts of Chinese doctors. Despite repeated warnings and disapproval from medical experts and professional institutions, it is still the center of a pandemic.
The party said that the minister ’s statement has made the public more concerned. “The federal government led by APC is cost-effective in telling the truth, and its officials play the role of civic life and national health and safety in politics.
Part of this statement is;
The party called the Minister of Health suspicious, creepy and strange, and he repeatedly promised to provide medical services and training to the Chinese. Even on April 8, 2020, they personally picked them up at the Nnnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja; in the carefully promoted activities, they could no longer be responsible for the team.
The PDP reviewed how government officials led by APC strongly defended the invitation of the Chinese team and provided them with a complete national agreement upon arrival, but now turned around and denied the so-called experts, denied involvement with them, and even prohibited Nigerians from conducting investigation about their whereabouts.
Our party is concerned that the federal government led by APC is really cost-effective and its officials play a political role in the lives of our citizens and the health and safety of our country.
The PDP believes that the government ’s inability to be accountable to the Chinese team is tantamount to directly betraying public trust, which exacerbates people ’s concerns about the conspiracy of some non-patriotic interests in APC and its government, which will damage our country ’s health structure and make our Citizens are in danger.
We invite Nigerians to pay attention, and when the Chinese team arrived in April, our country ’s COVID-19 data was 254 confirmed cases, of which 44 were successfully cured by our doctors and 6 died. There are other prominent reports disease.
To date, the data has at least 5,450 cases and 171 deaths.
Therefore, our party insists that the PTF on COVID-19 should immediately reveal the truth and provide an explanation for the whereabouts of the group within the next 48 hours to ease the tension in the country.
However, the PDP urges Nigerians to be vigilant while strengthening their personal and public health and safety strategies at this critical time.
