Nigerians Express Skepticism About Help From China

Most Nigerians are not happy with the Federal Government’s decision to invite 18 Chinese medical professionals to help in the war against the Coronavirus pandemic.

Switch Nigeria had reported that help was on the way in the form of Chinese medical experts coming to help combat the spread of the disease, but it appears Nigerians are not happy with the development as some have expressed concern about the trustworthiness of the Chinese, since it was there the disease started in the first place.

As the world is on its knees, China has turned benefactor and world leader in the production and donation of medical equipments to many African countries and to the Philippines, Italy, Iraq, Spain, Iran, etc. However, it has been gathered that most of the medical supplies made by China are substandard, while many others have rejected their generosity.

Nigeria had some days ago received some medical equipment from Chinese billionaire Jack Ma, after which the Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, said that 18 Chinese medics would soon arrive the country to assist in the fight against COVID-19, while addressing the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja on Friday.
