The House of Representatives on Tuesday rejected a call for the evacuation of Nigerians from China as coronavirus spreads from the country to other parts of the world.

 

The Chairman of the House committee on Media and Public Affairs, Mr Benjamin Kalu, had moved a motion praying that Nigerians stranded in China over the health crises be brought back to their Fatherland.

 

The lawmakers, however, voted against consideration of the motion. Despite the several efforts made by the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, to get a listening ear from the lawmakers, all proved abortive.
