UN Sec-Gen Commends Nigeria’s Remarkable Response To Coronoavirus Pandemic

 

United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, has commended Nigeria’s remarkable response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking during a virtual news briefing in New York on Thursday, Guterres singled out Nigeria as one of the developing countries that have “shown a remarkable capacity to respond.’.

“I have to say this; some of these developing countries have shown a remarkable capacity to respond.

“I was quite impressed to see, for instance, Nigeria putting in place and immediately establishing a hospital.

“And I saw difficulties in countries that are much more developed to do quickly the same,’’ Guterres said in response to a question.
