During a plenary session at the lower legislative chamber On Thursday, March 10, a member of House of Representative, Honorable Olufemi Adebanjo stressed that the deadly Coronavirus no longer exists in Nigeria, therefore telling Nigerians not to bother wearing face masks. He furthered expressed that the use of face mask has been overbearing stating that he had not heard of any Coronavirus cases in Nigeria or in other countries in the past 90 days.

According to Adebanjo whose assertions states that Nigeria is COVID-19 free however goes contrary to the report of the country’s health agency Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

It was also gathered that statistics of the NCDC shows that no fewer than 84 new cases were recorded on Thursday, March 10.

He says:

‘’It affects our respiratory system and our lungs. So there is no more COVID19 in Nigeria, there are no more COVID19 abroad’’

In response to his assertions, the deputy speaker, Idris Wase who presided over the plenary however said that the legislative decision will be made to decide if the use of facemask will be curbed in the country.

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging.
