Also on Monday , the Presidency accused some members of the National Assembly who recently returned from foreign trips of flouting coronavirus screening at the nation ’s airports .

The Presidency in a letter addressed to the President of the Senate , Ahmad Lawan , and the Speaker, House of Representatives dated March 21 , alleged that the actions of the federal lawmakers posed a serious threat to the health of other Nigerians .

The Presidency , in the letter signed by the Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari , said it was written based on the report from the Minister of Health on the refusal of some federal lawmakers to subject themselves to screening at the airport as directed by health officials .

Kyari , therefore , urged the presiding officers to direct all National Assembly members who recently returned from trips abroad to report to the National Centre for Disease Control nearest to them for necessary screening and tests .

A copy of the letter , with reference number SH / COS / TP / R 3 which was addressed to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila , was sighted by one of our correspondents on Monday .

The spokesperson for the Senate , Senator Godiya Akwashiki , denied knowledge of such letter when confronted by our correspondent on Monday . He said, “ I am not aware of any letter like that . Thank you. “

But while addressing journalists after plenary last week Thursday , Akwashiki said all senators who recently returned from foreign trips have been asked to go for tests .
