Coronavirus: Isolation Centre in Abuja ready in April says Buhari govt

President Muhammadu Buhari led federal government, in its update on coronavirus, on Friday, said the Isolation Centre in Abuja will be ready in April.

Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, said this while responding to the remarks of Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, on the poor state of the facility, NAN reports.

The Isolation Centre is located in Gwagwalada, a suburb in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Lawan, during his visit on Wednesday, condemned what he saw and lamented that not a kobo of the N620 million earmarked to fight coronavirus had been released.

But the minister claimed that funds approved to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), had been disbursed.

Ehanire added that construction is ongoing and the contractor has also been asked to fast-track it. NAN
