A Ghanaian member of the yet to be sworn in fifth Community Parliament, Clement Kofi Humado has said May of this year is enough time for the Nigerian Health authorities to control the spread of coronavirus recorded in Lagos to Abuja.

According to him, Lagos is far away from Abuja despite having airlines moving in between the two states, he believes the health authorities would move swiftly to quarantine the recorded case and those who the patient had been in contact with in time.

“But if they do not move early then it would spread and in that case it can also reach Abuja”, he said in an interview.

The first Ordinary Session of the fifth Community Parliament would be held in Abuja for the one hundred and fifteen lawmakers.

As to the health safety of MPs, Mr. Kofi Humado noted that when the coronavirus recorded in Lagos is controlled it would be safe for lawmakers to travel to Abuja for their first meeting.

He quickly pointed out that the rest of West African countries need to strengthen their boarders and put the necessary measures in place as well as Ghana to contain the coronavirus.
