Mr. Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari has written an internal memo to the Speaker, House of Representatives, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila to direct members of the house for coronavirus test.

In the memo dated March 21, 2020 and entitled, “COVID 19; Airport Screening”, and signed by Kyari, many of the lawmakers who came in from abroad had turned down screening at the airport.

Kyari noted that the airport screening is the primary line of defence but the refusal of the lawmakers is a potential threat to the spread of the coronavirus in the country.

The COS thus requested that Gbajabiamila direct the lawmakers to visit the nearest centre for disease control for test.
