OHANEZE TO NDIGBO: Don’t wear face masks from China, use 'Aba made'

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, has warned people from the south east against the use of face masks imported from China or submit themselves to be treated by Chinese doctors.

President-General of the group, which is loyal to a breakaway faction of the parent Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, in a statement signed and issued on Monday, said that instead, they should wear face masks made in Aba, Abia State.

The OYC also claimed that face mask brought into the country by Chinese doctors, “who are showing desperation to come to Nigeria amidst speculations about their sincere intentions with one million face masks is very suspicious.”

Reacting further, the OYC also queried acceptance of one million face masks, adding that “uncertified sources had raised doubts that such personal preventive equipment may be second hand and capable of infesting Nigerians with Coronavirus, which Chinese doctors might want to exploit to ruin our economy and enslave Nigerians.”

It added that irrespective of the claim that China has contained the spread of Coronavirus in their country, “the desperate attempt to bring in these Chinese doctors against all odds shows that there’s more to it, when Aba artisans can produce 1 million face masks in one week.”
