Coronavirus: Reps reject motion for evacuation of Nigerians from China

Members of the House of Representatives, on Tuesday, rejected a motion calling for the evacuation of Nigerians in Wuhan, China over fears of contacting the deadly coronavirus.

Several Nigerians are reported to be in Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak.

A member of the Green Chamber, Ben Kalu, had sought the permission of the House to move a motion of urgent public importance on the need to evacuate Nigerians from the city.
