Comedian, Sydney Talker Slams NCDC For Setting Up A Nonfunctional Covid-19 Emergency Line

Fast rising social media based Nigerian comedian, Sydney Talker has mocked and slammed the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) for giving the general public a coronavirus emergency line that they refuse to pick when called.

The comedian made his grievances known when he took to his official Instagram page to record a video of himself trying to put a call across to the NCDC and for three consecutive attempts couldn’t pull through.


On the first attempt, music was played throughout. He was told all call agents were occupied at the second attempt and on the third and last attempt the call got automatically terminated.

“I will leave this country, aah! God know” he said after failed attempts of getting the NCDC speak with him on phone.

The comedian also recalled a scenario that played out when a friend of his called NCDC and they told him he wasn’t having enough symptoms to get tested.
