FG Urged to Impose Travel Restriction On China

The Youth Party has urged the Federal Government to immediately restrict travel from China in other to avoid another pandemic.

We note that although China is refusing to share accurate information on infections and deaths from the resurgence of Covid, it is estimated that at least 5,000 people are dying daily from the dreaded virus. We urge the Federal Government to first restrict travel from China and take necessary steps to trace, isolate and test passengers from China in the last two weeks.

It is pertinent to state that about 13 countries have restricted travel from China to protect their citizens, and I wonder why the Federal Government is waiting for knowing the huge traffic between Nigeria and China. We must ensure we immediately impose travel restrictions from China and take the necessary steps to track passengers that have arrived in Nigeria from China in the last two weeks.

It is our informed position that Nigeria’s health system and economy cannot manage another pandemic and must do everything necessary to avoid a resurgence.

Thank you.
