Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama has stated that the cost of Covid19 test is more expensive than Nigeria’s minimum wage, and has called on the Federal government to make the test free of charge.
The Super Eagles all time most capped player with 101 caps made this known on his social media page where he wrote,
“Payment for Covid-19 test in Nigeria is more expensive than the minimum wage.COVID-19 test should be free.”
It will be recalled that Nigeria’s minimum wage is around ₦30,000 while the cost for the COVID-19 test is around ₦50,000 – ₦60, 000.
This has made most average Nigerians who couldn’t afford the cost not taking the tests.
