Ex-Super Eagles Captain Enyeama Slams 'Expensive' COVID-19 Tests in Nigeria

Former Super Eagles captain Vincent Enyeama may be far away in France but he seems to be abreast with issues back at home.

On Thursday via his Twitter handle, Eneyama fumed over the high cost of COVID-19 tests in the country; adding that it is even more than the country's minimum wage for workers.

He wrote: "Payment for Covid-19 test in Nigeria is more expensive than the minimum wage.COVID-19 test should be free."

Expectedly, Eyeama's submission drew some replies with one of the users alluding to the fact that in Nigeria people will cash out on just anything

A user with the handle @GlDEONN wrote: It’s always business as usual, you expect someone that cannot feed to pay such exuberant amount just to get tested and come back home to still die of hunger?
