Rauf Aregbesola who is the minister of Interior and former governor of Osun state has told Nigerians that there is no need to panic over the widespread of the coronavirus throughout the globe. He said there is no need for Nigeria to close its border yet because the Ministry of Health is doing just fine in fighting the virus.
He said the borders will be close to European travelers and people from the United State when the time is right and appropriate advice will be given.
He took to his twitter page to say;
“The @Fmohnigeria is leading Nigeria’s efforts on combating Corona Virus and they are doing a fantastic job at it. According to the yesterday’s briefing from the minister, @DrEOEhanire, Nigeria will continue to monitor incoming travelers and select those that are fit for secondary screening. If and when the time comes for Nigeria to lock up our borders, appropriate advice will be given to that effect.
For now, let us trust the professionals handling the job and continue to maintain high personal hygiene and other measures, as advised by the Federal Ministry of Health.”
