Nigerian music star, 2Baba has slammed the management of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) for hindering Nigerians trying to travel out of the country.
On Tuesday, April 20, 2021, 2Baba took to his Instagram page to call out the organisation over its flawed process of COVID-19 testing for travellers.
On the NCDC website, it is stated that a pre-boarding COVID-19 PCR test must be done within 96 hours before departure.
However, to the frustration of many including the veteran musician, travelers who took the COVID-19 test failed to get the Quick Response (QR) code which shows their results from the NCDC website, leaving them stranded.
“Ridiculous @ncdcgov compulsory covid 19 arrival test portal collects N50k per passenger and fails to deliver QR code. Passengers stranded. Business and personal commitments messed up. Who bears responsibility for this?” a frustrated 2face said in a video he shared on his Instagram.

“NCDC or whatever portal, you people better wake up. You are causing serious hardship for people travelling. You go dey airport them go say pay one thing…what kind of wickedness is that?” he asked.
“Just imagine Nigerians stranded in the airport because…this is totally unacceptable. It is annoying. This is wickedness.”
Other passengers could be seen in his video expressing their disappointment at the NCDC for causing flight delays.
