Shehu Sani blasts FG for charging Nigerian returnees

Former Senator from Kaduna, Shehu Sani has reacted as Nigerians returning home due to coronavirus pandemic are told to offset their two-week quarantine bill on arrival.

The Nigerian government in a revised guideline asked returnees to pay for their two weeks stay at isolation centers.

Before Friday, the returnees were only required to pay for their flight back home while the government took care of them for two weeks in their various isolation centres.

But in the letter by the Embassy of Nigeria in Bangkok, Thailand, which was signed by the Head of Chancery, Nicholas P. Uhomoibhi, and dated May 14, each returnee is to pay N297,600 for quarantine and feeding in Nigeria.
