- MDCAN argues that the current cases of COVID-19 in the country do not require foreign assistance
- The chairman of the association, Dr Muhammed Adeboye, says Nigeria is not overwhelmed by coronavirus cases and does not need any professional help
The Medical and Dental Consultants Association of Nigeria (MDCAN), University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) chapter has warned the federal government that inviting medical experts from China to help in fighting coronavirus pandemic could pose health dangers for the country.
The chairman of the association, Dr Muhammed Adeboye, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday, April 4, in Ilorin that the current cases of COVID-19 in the country do not require foreign assistance.
He said Nigeria was not overwhelmed by coronavirus cases and does not need any professional help from any part of the world.
The association warned that any unwarranted eternal help could allow room for foreigners to manipulate the virus to be more harmful to Nigerians.
”Bringing people in can be an avenue for many terrible things to happen as well, because we don’t have the capacity to manipulate viruses whether confirmed or not," Adeboye warned.
They can still manipulate to want to know what it is that is working for us, then go ahead to manipulate the virus again.
”And then, they will now import the virus with the so-called unwarranted assistance, before you know it more people will be dying of it."
The MDCAN chairman insisted that Nigeria does not need any foreign assistance, not even from China.
Legit.ng had earlier reported that the federal government said it was expecting a team of medical experts from China to assist Nigerian to handle the coronavirus pandemic.
Osagie Enahire, minister of health, made the disclosure at the presidential task force on COVID-19 briefing in Abuja on Friday, April 3.
He said the team of medical professionals expected from China will include doctors, nurses and other medical advisers.
In another report, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God has said children are the heritage of God and he hears their prayers during the coronavirus pandemic the world is currently facing.
The cleric suggested that through prayers from the children of God, the world will overcome the coronavirus pandemic. Adeboye quoted Jesus as saying:
"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these, the cleric said
"Remember we as children of God can call on our father at any time and he will answer us. God bless you."
The man of God shared a prayer against the deadly disease written by a child who is aware of what the world is going through.
