A former Kogi State Senator, Dino Melaye has knocked the Federal Government for bringing Chinese doctors into the country to help in the fight against the coronavirus disease.

Melaye expressed his displeasure via his official Twitter handle on Thursday.

He wrote: “It is Leadership irresponsibility for the FG to disregard the call by majority Nigerians on the importation of Chinese doctors into Nigeria.

“It is gross disrespect for the NMA to be ignored with ignominy. Except the Chinese doctors are here to treat infected Aso rock patients.

“OH GOD give us Leaders who Fear You and are passionately in love with their people.”
