- Goodluck Jonathan is still referred to as president of Nigeria on the website of the Nigerian embassy in China, five years after he left office
- Another outdated information spotted on the site was the office of the Nigerian minister of foreign affairs which was said to be occupied by Aminu Wali who left office in 2015
- It appears that since President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office in 2015, the website of the Nigerian embassy in China has not been updated despite Nigeria’s strong ties with China
Five years after he was voted out of office, Goodluck Jonathan is still referred to as president of Nigeria on the website of the Nigerian embassy in China.
When Legit.ng visited the website, https://beijing.ngembassy.org/, on Friday, January 31, it found out that the embassy was replete with outdated information as a picture of Jonathan was seen on the site with the caption: President Goodluck Jonathan.
Another outdated information spotted on the site was the office of the Nigerian minister of foreign affairs which was said to be occupied by Aminu Wali.
Wali actually occupied the position between 2014 and 2015 and was succeeded by the current minister of foreign affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama.
It appears that since President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office in 2015, the website of the Nigerian embassy in China has not been updated despite Nigeria’s strong ties with China.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Senate has officially reacted to the spread of the deadly coronavirus globally. Senator Chukwuka Utazi representing Enugu North senatorial district on Thursday, January 30 moved a motion on the coronavirus outbreak and preventive response towards stemming its spread in Nigeria.
Reacting, Senator James Manager from Delta state said: “This virus is like another Ebola. The health ministry is doing well and I want to urge them to do better. The Chinese are everywhere and this virus is a deadly disease.”
In another report, Osagie Ehanire, the minister of health, on Tuesday, January 28, confirmed that only in 2020, Nigeria has recorded 41 deaths and 258 cases of Lassa fever outbreak in not less than 19 states.
In a briefing on Tuesday, January 28, Ehanire said that Nigerians should embark on massive hygiene in all their activities as a preventive measure, Channels TV reports.
He said that another way to avoid the spread of the viral disease is the covering of food from rats which is the vector.
On the Coronavirus outbreak, the minister said that although there has been no case of the epidemic, the risk of importation was high.
Moreover, he said that with the presence of the disease in African countries like Ivory Coast and Kenya, there is a cause for worry, since the disease can be spread by humans.
Still on health, the first case of Lassa fever has been detected in Benue state, north-central Nigeria. This was disclosed by the chief medical director of Benue State University Teaching Hospital (BSUTH), Profesor Terlumun Swede on Tuesday, January 28.
Professor Swende, who spoke through the chairman, medical advisory committee of BSUTH, Professor Olusanya Alao, said the victim is a 40-year-old woman from Okpoga in Okpokwu local government area of the state.
