Pdp gives 48-hour ultimatum to fg to declare chinese doctors’ location

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has given the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government a 48-hour ultimatum to declare the whereabouts of the Chinese medical team it brought in to assist in the fight against the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

The party said its position was predicated on the alarming declaration by the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, that he could not account for the whereabouts of the Chinese team, who were brought into the country from the epicentre of the pandemic, despite repeated warnings and disapproval by the Nigerian medical experts and professional bodies.

The PDP, in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, said, “The minister’s statement had heightened apprehensions in the public space that the Chinese team, whose identity and activities have been shrouded in secrecy, might have been brought in by a certain cabal for another purpose outside the general public good.”

The party described as suspicious, that the minister of health, who had repeatedly assured that the Chinese were brought to render medical services and training and even went personally to receive them at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, on April 8, 2020, in an elaborately publicised event, could no longer account for the team.
