COVID-19: President Muhammadu Buhari goes into isolation

Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari's Senior Assistant for Media and Public Affairs, Mallam Garba Shehu, has confirmed that the President has been isolated following his return from his London trip in accordance with COVID-19 procedures.

Shehu disclosed that the president and members of his delegation would be isolated in accordance with the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC) guidelines for international travel.

According to Shehu, President Buhari and his travel companions underwent the mandatory PCR test on Friday, August 13, and will undergo a second test days later.

The president and some Nigerian officials reportedly contacted the Nigerian High Commissioner in the United Kingdom, some of whom tested positive for COVID-19.

The President and those who accompanied him to the United Kingdom tested positive for COVID-19 upon their return to the country.

President Muhammadu Buhari recently visited former Lagos State Governor Bola Tinubu in London; the visit sparked reactions on social media platforms.

In a television interview, President Buhari's Special Assistant on Media and Public relations, Femi Adesina, said his boss did not visit the former governor to discuss the 2023 elections.

Adesina said Buhari's visit to Tinubu was merely a goodwill gesture he expressed following disclosures about the former Lagos governor's current health.

The presidential aide argued that it was too early for the president to endorse any candidate, adding that it was difficult to accept everything being circulated on social media about Tinubu's health.
