The Federal Government on Friday said it will not stop Nigerians from travelling to China or any other country where coronavirus has manifested.
Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, who made this known while addressing newsmen after a meeting at the Ministry of Health, on Friday, said that rather than impose travel ban, there will be travel advisory that will help Nigerians who wish to visit China to do so without any encumbrances to their health and wellbeing.
“We know it is a bit difficult to ban people from travelling.
“Another thing is that this is not a basis to stigmatise people who come from there.
“Even if we have Nigerians who are there, unless they indicate interest that they want to come home, we can’t force them.
“I know we have Nigerians in Wuhan; our Embassy in China has confirmed that we have about 16 Nigerians in Wuhan and they are in touch with them.
