Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigerians that are stranded in the United Kingdom expressed great frustration over how their evacuation is being delayed by the federal government.
The Nigerians said that the government does not have the right to keep its citizens out of the country for whatever reason.
In a statement released on Sunday, April 26, by Olajoke Adesipe, a representative of the Nigerians, most of them are negative for coronavirus.
The Nigerians, therefore, appealed to Geoffrey Onyeama, the minister of foreign affairs, to urgently come rescue them.
“The action of the Federal Government shutting its airports against Nigerians in overseas is contrary to section14 (2) (b) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” they said.
The stranded Nigerians asked the government to give them details on when they would be airlifted, the airlines that would do that and how much they would be paying for their flights.
They also gave ideas on how they could be contained when they arrive in the country, telling the government how they could go about it.

“Since most of us on the platform have tested Negative for COVID-19, on arrival in Nigeria, temperature checks should be conducted to further ascertain our COVID-19 status and the government should allow us to self-quarantine in our various homes.
“We’re more than willing to sign an agreement to this request. If it is a must that we’re isolated by the government, we suggest the use of NYSC orientation camps as all of those centres are vacant now and each state has its own. Most of us do not currently possess the means by which we’re expected to pay for our accommodation at the isolation centres,” they said.
When the media asked the spokesman of the ministry, Ferdinand Nwonye, when the Nigerians would be brought back home, they were directed to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).
