United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has commended Nigeria’s response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Speaking during a virtual news briefing in New York, 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.
