The Bill seeks to ensure compulsory vaccination of citizens against infectious diseases, make possession of health card mandatory for international travellers leaving or arriving in Nigeria just like yellow fever card and repeal the Quarantine Act.

Fayemi in a statement he signed on Wednesday after a virtual meeting with other governors called for the bill to be stepped down pending an appropriate public hearing to gather public opinion and concerns.
