Some 1,000 Nigerians have reportedly requested to leave the United States and Europe to Nigeria due to the coronavirus situation.

Sources say they have officially made an application to the Federal Government of Nigeria for their return.

But the Federal Government has set some conditions for them to meet before they can return.

The two conditions are that to ensure their return, they ought to
undergo a compulsory coronavirus test in their host countries before returning.

They are to also mandatorily subject themselves to a 14-day quarantine upon arrival.

Accordingly, the two conditions are in strict compliance with the guidelines set by the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) in Nigeria.

The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), led by Abike Dabiri-Erewa, is reportedly collating the requests.
