Nigeria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, has admitted that the country cannot evacuate all Nigerians abroad, who might be willing to return home because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

According to him, the country does not have the capacity or resources to do so.

The Ministry on April 2, 2020, had directed all its missions abroad, to compile a list of citizens willing to come back.

However, speaking on Channels TV on Tuesday, Onyeama said: “It is not as simple as people think. We just don’t have the capacity and resources to absorb all of them immediately, so we would have to probably do it in stages.

“It is not as simple as people think it is. We have to make provision for isolation centres for them in Nigeria here, where they would be isolated for 14 days.”
