Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that there was a mild drama on Tuesday, February 4, as the members of the House of Representatives rejected a motion to evacuate Nigerians allegedly stranded in China following the outbreak of the Coronavirus.

The lawmakers who voted massively against the motion raised by the spokesperson of the house, Benjamin Okezie, said China has better facilities to handle the situation than Nigeria.

Legit.ng gathered that despite efforts by the speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, to calm the lawmakers and allow Okezie to move his motion, the lawmakers denied him the opportunity.

It was learned that the drama ensued when two other sponsors of the bill who were meant to support the motion, declined to second the motion to be moved.
