Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  who is the main opposition, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari government “an ultimatum of 48-hour to disclose the whereabouts of the chinese medical experts who were brought in order to help in tackling against the extension of the corona virus in Nigeria.”

Peoples Democratic party who in the main opposition declared this on its official Twitter page on Saturday night, while reacting to a declaration by the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, that he cannot account for the whereabouts of the Chinese medical experts.

PDP said: “More so, 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 PDP said it was questionable, fearful and doom that Dr. Ehanire, who is the Minister for health matters in the country and had allegedly guarantee that the Chinese were brought for medical services and trainings; “and even went personally to receive them at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on April 8, 2020, in an elaborately publicized event, can no longer account for the team.”

The PDP also disclosed that, it was worrisome that the Buhari government was not open up to Nigerians and he is “playing games with the lives of our citizens and health safety of our nation.”

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  who is the main opposition said it holds that the government’s inability to provide the Chinese medical professionals amounts to direct betrayal of public trust, “which has heightened fears of conspiracies by certain unpatriotic interests in the APC and its administration to compromise the health architecture of our nation and expose our citizens to danger.”

PDP said. “Nigerians can recall how the Federal Government had failed to respond to demands by our party and other well-meaning Nigerians for the particulars of the members of the team, their medical status, scope of operation, detailed itinerary within our country as well as the safety of the equipment they brought into our nation.

“Our party had expressed worry over scary reports of escalation of the scourge in certain countries reportedly after the arrival of Chinese medical personnel in those countries and insisted that the @OfficialAPCNg administration should be held responsible should there be any sudden upsurge in COVID-19 infection and deaths in our country, with the arrival of the said Chinese medical team".

The main opposition revealed that before the arrival of the medical experts from Asia, Nigeria’s nation’s corona virus index was at 254 authentic cases with 44 successfully discharged by Nigerian medical experts and 6 deaths recorded but had suddenly increased to 5,450 cases and 171 deaths as of today.

The PDP said it laying emphasis that Boss Mustapha, the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 led by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation,  “should immediately come out with the truth and provide explanations on the whereabouts of the team in the next 48 hours so as to douse the tension in the country.”
