Abba Kyari, the Chief of State to President Muhammadu Buhari, has written a letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.

In the letter dated March 21, 2020, Abba Kayi expressed displeasure over the alleged refusal of some members of the House of Representatives shunning airport screening when they touched down at the airport.

He wants the erring House members to visit the test centre immediately, maintaining that their action was a serious threat to national security.

The authenticity of the letter has not been confirmed, and Abba Kyari did not state the airport where the incident happened or the House members involved.

“It was has been brought to the Honourable Minister of Health recent report to this office that some members of the House of Representatives are refusing to subject themselves to medical screening at airports.

“As you are aware, this airport screening is our primary line of defence and refusal by any citizen to subject to this test is a threat to our nation.

“Accordingly, you are kindly requested to direct all members of the House of Representatives who returned to Nigeria from foreign trips to report themselves to the nearest NCDC test centre with immediate effect.

“As always distinguished President of the Senate, please accept the assurances of my highest regard,”the letter reads.
