He called on the Speaker to press on the lawmakers who recently returned into the country, to immediately present themselves for screening to the nearest Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), as this is the only primary line of defence for the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.

“As you are aware, these airports screenings are our primary line of defence and refusal by any citizen to subject themselves to these tests is a threat to our nation,” Kyari explained.
