COVID-19: President Buhari Goes Into Isolation

President Muhammadu Buhari has gone into self-isolation to observe COVID-19 protocol.

This, after the President and officials who accompanied him on his 18-day trip to the United Kingdom, came in contact with officials of Nigeria’s High Commissioner in the United Kingdom, some of who have tested positive for COVID-19.

Their positive test led to the closure of the High Commission facilities for 10 days beginning on Thursday, 12th August 2021.

Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, confirmed the development, noting that it is in line with Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) guidelines for international travel.

He said; “Mr. President and all of those on his delegation will be isolated in line with NCDC guidelines for international travel.” Among those who accompanied the President was Foreign Affairs Minister Geoffrey Onyeama; Minister of State for Education Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba; National Security Adviser (NSA), Maj.-Gen. Babagana Monguno; and National Intelligence Agency (NIA) Director-General Amb. Ahmed Rufai Abubakar”.
