Presidential Steering Committee Will Respond To UK Red Listing Nigeria – Lai Mohammed

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has come out to condemn the red listing of Nigeria by the UK government over the two cases of the omicron variant of COVID-19.

He recently revealed this while speaking at a news conference in Abuja, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the decision by the British government to put Nigeria on the red list is very unjust, unfair, punitive, indefensible and discriminatory.

He added that it is up to the Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) to respond to this action by the British government and others, and he has no doubt that the Committee will respond appropriately.

His words, ”As you are aware, Britain has put Nigeria on its red list and banned foreign travels from our country.”

“This is as a result of the discovery of Covid-19 cases, Omicron variant, in Nigeria. Britain now joins other countries, including Canada, which have taken a similar action against Nigeria over Omicron.”

“Let me say straight away that it’s up to the Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) to respond to this action by the British government and others, and I have no doubt that the Committee will respond appropriately.”

“However, as the Spokesman for the Federal Government, I can say, without mincing words, that the decision by the British government to put Nigeria on the red list, just because of less than two dozen cases of Omicron which, by the way, did not originate in Nigeria, is unjust, unfair, punitive, indefensible and discriminatory. The decision is also not driven by science.”

“We sincerely hope the British government will immediately review the decision to put Nigeria on its red list and rescind it immediately. Nigeria has handled the Covid-19 pandemic with utmost responsibility and based on science, and has rightly earned.”

“Nigeria does not belong on any country’s red list.”
