The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has allowed only private laboratories to carry out tests on intending travelers abroad, Daily Times

According to reports that the test ranges from ₦50,000 to ₦75, 000.

Expressing his displeasure, Giwa wondered why Buhari has decided to punish Nigerians in all areas.

In a statement, Giwa said: “On electricity, we pay what we don’t use; they decided to also jack up the price of petroleum; we are adapting to it.

“Now, COVID-19 test for Nigerians and travelers is between N75,000 and N50,000. Buhari, tell us what we have done to deserve this punishment.

“They are now justifying why they don’t want COVID-19 to disappear in Nigeria. Why must you allow only private laboratories to carry out tests when there are public ones?

“What did they use the billions of Naira they spent on COVID-19 for? In America today, without any health insurance, COVID-19 test is free.

“President Buhari and others should know that they have limited time, and the world is watching them.”
