Nigeria has registered 749 new covid-19 cases, almost twice the 397 announced on Monday.
Three deaths were also announced, two in Abuja and one in kano, puting the national death at 1,267.
Abuja has 101 death toll.
One of the dead in Abuja was Professor Femi Odekunle, a 77 year old member of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC.
He died at Gwagwalada Isolation Centre.
Amid warnings by the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control,NCDC, that Covid-19 cases will shoot up in January, Nigeria Covid cases have never followed a normal rejection.
This is because the daily figures are dependent on people coming out for tests or people falling ill and requesting for tests.
