NIDCOM denied this in a recent statement signed by Abdur-Rahman Balogun its Head of Media and Public Relations Unit.
According to the commission, every report saying a letter has been sent for evacuation is not correct even if it is circulating on social media.
Abdur-Rahman added that NIDCOM has been in constant touch with the Nigerian Students Association in Wuhan (NSAW) and they intend to keep collaborating with the Minister of Foreign Affairs to talk about the next step to be taken.
His words, “Our attention has been drawn to a statement on various social media platforms allegedly from the Nigerians in the Diaspora Organisation (East China) claiming it had written a letter to Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) requesting to be evacuated in the face of the dreaded coronavirus ravaging the people living in China.
“We must say, however, that NIDCOM did not receive any correspondence from NIDO East China but saw it on different social media outlets.
“However, we have been in constant touch with the Nigerian Students Association in Wuhan (NSAW) whose President is Okoye Chiamaka and Vandi Kamaunji (Secretary General), several Nigerians resident in China as well as our Mission in Beijing.
“All communication and suggestions we have received so far have been forwarded to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, who will take appropriate decisions.
“NIDCOM will continue to co-ordinate with the ministry and the mission in Beijing as it awaits further instructions as directed by the Hon. Minister in this particular situation.”
