He, however, said that when the coronavirus broke out in Wuhan, he was very anxious, saying that the fear reduced with the preventive measures that came up.

Abdulraheem said that the idea to leave the city never occurred to him, that all he just wanted to do was to see how he could help.

When he was asked if he still felt the urgent need to leave the city going by cries by other Nigerians for evacuation, he said no.

In advising the Nigerian government on what to do, he said that giving Nigerians a good welfare package will go a long way to calm raging nerves.

He also pointed out the need for a good information system between Nigerians in Wuhan and the federal government which will create a better understanding and appraisal of the situation on the ground.
