One of Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter has returned from the United Kingdom and is in self-isolation, the first lady, Aisha Buhari, said Thursday.
Writing on Twitter, Mrs Buhari said her unnamed daughter showed no symptoms of the deadly coronavirus but heeded the advice of the Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, and Presidential Task force on COVID – 19 and that of NCDC to self-isolate if coming into the country from high risk countries.
“She is on self Isolation, not because she displayed any symptoms of the Covid-19. Please I urge all parents to do the same if possible as prevention is better than cure,” she tweeted.
“Similarly, I have shut down my office for two weeks with immediate effect while essential staff can work from home as a result of some Staff who recently returned from the UK.”
Mrs Buhari also commended North-west governors for taking preventive measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 at their security meeting yesterday in Kaduna.
“We will overcome the Covid-19 pandemic if we all take the necessary precautions at the same time,” she said.
