Mavin Records singer, Divine Ikubor, popularly known by his stage name, Rema, says Nigerian politicians will regret not investing in the Nigerian health sector during this time of coronavirus outbreak.

The virus has spread across the country, with several top officials contracting the infection on their trips outside the country or through contact with infected people.

So far, there are 51 confirmed cases in Nigeria, 32 in Lagos, 10 in Abuja, 3 in Ogun and one each in Ekiti, Oyo, Edo, Bauchi, Osun and Rivers.

With most advanced countries on lockdown, the rich Nigerian politicians have nowhere to take themselves and family to if they contract the virus.

That, according to Rema, is Karma punishing them for failing in their duties to the citizens and the nation.

"They refused to invest in hospitals because they could fly abroad to get treatments for themselves, now countries borders closed, Karma take the wheel," Rema wrote on Twitter.

In a similar assessment of the situation, social critic, Nedu Ekeke, also asked why the government was flying Abba Kyari to Lagos after budgeting over N5 billion for Aso Villa Clinic in the last three years.

"Presidency plans to fly Abba Kyari to Lagos for treatment. But in 3 years between 2016 and 2018, Buhari's govt budgeted a total of N5.2 billion for Aso Villa Clinic. (2016 = N3.87b, 2017 = N331.7m, 2018 = N1.03b). So, why Lagos?" Nedu asked on his Twitter page.
