Amid COVID-19 scare, Buhari, others go into isolation
The Guardian reports have indicated that President Muhammadu Buhari and members of his delegation to London, UK, will go into isolation following a COVID-19 scare.
This comes after the UK High Commissioner, Ambassador Sarafa Tunji Isola, who was seen in close contact with the President at the Airport in London and other members of the embassy staff, reportedly tested positive for coronavirus.
Recall that the High Commission of Nigerian has since been locked down for 10 days in observation of UK COVID-19 regulations.
Buhari was accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, Minister of State Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, National Security Adviser, Maj. Gen. Babagana Monguno (rtd) and Director General of National Intelligence Agency, Amb. Ahmed Rufai Abubakar, among others.
The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, confirmed his principal and those who travelled with him would have to go into isolation in line with the guideline for international travels.
“Mr President and all of those on his delegation will be isolated in line with NCDC guidelines for international travel.
“They all tested yesterday (Friday) and will follow up with another test in due course,” Shehu said on Saturday.
President Buhari returned to Abuja on Friday, after a two-week stay in the United Kingdom.
