COVID-19: FG suspends evacuation of Nigerians abroad

The federal government has suspended further evacuation of Nigerians stranded abroad over the COVID-19 pandemic.

Geoffrey Onyeama, minister of foreign affairs, who announced this during the presidential task force on COVID-19 briefing on Wednesday, however, said the evacuation is expected to continue soon.

He said the evacuation was suspended to give room for new measures that would require citizens returning from overseas to get tested and self-isolate at home rather than in selected hotels.

“There is going to be a change in that protocol and that is going to affect the timing of any further evacuation we are going to undertake,” he said.
