… Says It Is Time TO Reciprocate Its Kindness TO China
… Cements 2 Nations Friendship
… PDP Calls On Citizens To Be On Alert
In a bid to assuage the fears of Nigerians over the entrance of Chinese medial experts to Nigeria to contain the dreaded coronavirus epidemic which has been ravaging the universe, the Chinese Government has called on Nigerians to entertain no fear rather assured that they honored the invitation of the Nigerian Government over the COVID-19 as a part of the ways to pay back to the Nigerians of their efforts to Chinese when this epidemic first entered in China.
Before the arrival of the Chinese Medical Team to Nigeria to facilitate the cure of the dreaded COVID-19, virtually all the sectors in the country including NMA, the Peoples Democratic Party were skeptical about their invitation to Nigeria on the grounds that the said disease originated or was manufactured by the Chinese Government, therefore should not come to Nigeria for a cure of the disease which they allegedly put in place.
The National leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party had in its press release signed by its national publicity secretary Kola Ologbondiyan called on Nigerians to be on the alert over the entrance of Chinese arrival in Nigeria to Cure patients of COVID-19 while our local medical doctors are on top of the situation.
According to the party’s scribe, out of 254 cases of COVID-19 in Nigeria 44 had been treated and six deaths hence no need for inviting the said people in Nigeria.
Speaking upon arrival of the Chinese Medical experts in Nigeria last Wednesday, the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Zhou Pingjian enjoined Nigerians to cooperate with China adding that they honored the invitation to cement the friendship between Chinese Government and Nigeria.
The Chinese Government is reciprocating the Friendship between both countries, hence our arrival, he said.
After much expectation tainted with controversies, 12 Chinese medical experts and three others landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, last Wednesday, to assist the Federal Government in the fight against the Coronavirus.
This is as Nigeria recorded 22 new cases to take the cumulative figure to 276, the new cases were reported in Lagos 15, FCT Four, Bauchi two and Edo-on
Forty-four cases have been discharged while six deaths have been recorded.
The Chinese medical workers, who arrived aboard an Air Peace aircraft, which touched down at about 4:30 pm, were received by the Minister of health, Osagie Ehanire, accompanied by the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Zhou Pinghian, and officials of the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC).
