Nigerian singer, Innocent Idibia, popularly known as 2Baba, has lamented about the exorbitant COVID-19 compulsory fee required of travellers, and described the portal of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) as a scam.
According to the singer, who made a post on his Instagram account on Wednesday, passengers were left stranded as the NCDC portal failed to generate their QR (Quick Response) code, leaving him and other passengers at the boarding airport stranded.
The unnecessary delay, he said, has messed up the business and personal commitment of travellers who are due to arrive in the country.
The singer wrote: “NCDC you people better wake up because you’re causing serious problems and hardship for people travelling.
“You keep requesting for payment and codes from travelers yet your workers are nowhere to be found even when they know that people travel everyday.
“Agency that knows that people travel every second will close, even when they are called nobody answers.
“It’s ridiculous that the NCDC compulsory COVID19 arrival test portal collects 50k per passenger and fails to deliver QR code.
“Passengers are stranded at the airport, business and personal commitments messed up.
“This NCDC scam and extortion must stop because this is wickedness and its very frustrating.”
