CHINESE DOCTORS TO FG: IGNORE CALLS FROM AGENTS OF DISINFORMATION


The 15 Chinese medical experts flown into the country to render assistance to the government of Nigeria to curtail the raging Covid-19 pandemic in the country, have called on the federal government not to allow their presence in the country and the pandemic to be politicized.

Speaking after due consultations with virologists, epidemiologists and security experts, in Abuja on Friday, they urged the federal government to ignore the calls from the ignorant, the misinformed and agents of disinformation.

In a statement made available to Chasideho.com, by Wellington Olaiya, Director of Public Relations for the Centre for Social and Inter-Ethnic Cohesion (CENSIC the doctors were quoted as saying they were are in total support of the approval issued by the federal government to them to assist in the fight against COVID-19."


“We are in total support of the approval issued by the federal government to the Chinese medical specialists to assist in the fight against COVID-19.We must bracket the raging COVID-19 pandemic in Nigeria, and any help is welcome, whether it be from the Chinese, the Americans, the Italians or any other nation. We must not politicise this pandemic, and we urge the federal government to ignore the calls from the ignorant, the misinformed and agents of disinformation,” they said.

Continuing, they added, “We are witnessing attempts by international and local actors to weaponise this pandemic to achieve political goals, and we must ensure the interest of Nigeria remains paramount during this challenging period. We urge all Nigerians to seek what is in the best interest of our dear country because COVID-19 poses an unprecedented threat to our lives and our nation.”

They noted that they were aware there have been mistakes made, “but this is not the time to apportion blame or politicise the common threat we face.”

They expressed their appreciation for the assistance provided by Turkey, China and other nations thus far, and Nigeria, noting that they required all the support it could get to ensure that they did not experience the level of misery this virus has caused Italy, the United States, Spain, France and the United Kingdom.
