Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) on Tuesday advocated for the three tiers of government
to explore the South African option of compulsory door to door Coronavirus testing for all citizens.
CUPP’s Spokesperson, Mr
Ikenga Ugochinyere, gave the suggestions in a statement in Abuja .
Ugochinyere said the government needed to do more in the fight against Coronavirus.
” The U.S. and other western nations are carrying their citizens out of Nigeria that has 131 confirmed Coronavirus infected persons back to their home countries that have more than 100,000 confirmed Coronavirus cases with thousands of death.
“It is like they have credible intelligence that shows we are not doing enough or that our 131 number might not be the reality on ground and that the virus is now on the loose.
“NCDC and Health Ministry have to do more testing, contact tracing and proactive isolation,” he said
Ugochinyere urged citizens to
do their part by staying at home.
He called on the government to source for funds to support citizens and also procure more equipment and manpower to conduct door to door testing.
