While the coronavirus is killing thousands off people across the world, the pandemic has become a lucrative business for many others.
Cross River state governor, Ben Ayade who stated this, added that the pandemic was being used to exploit both Nigeria and Africa in general.
Ayade who said these while speaking on Channels Television also disclosed that his Chinese friend has made so much money by importing reagents used in conducting COVID-19 tests.
”Out there in the Western world; a businessman is fanning all of this, making sure they sell reagents. Indeed, my friend out of Switzerland, a Chinese, says he has made so much money importing reagents out of the Philippines and shipping to the world.
“So it has turned into a full-scale business. I can tell you this testing for Coronavirus has gone Eco-political. In the US for example, it is about the November elections and for some businessmen, it is about more reagents, more money.
“But for me, it is science, it is reality, and because a wrong mentality will give you a wrong reality, I will hold the right mentality,” the governor stated.
