President Muhammadu Buhari has gone into self-isolation after he and some Nigerian officials came in contact with officials of Nigeria’s High Commissioner in the United Kingdom, some of who have tested positive for COVID-19.
This came after the President and those who accompanied him on the 18-day trip to the United Kingdom were tested for COVID-19 after returning to the country.
Presidential aide, Garba Shehu confirmed the development, saying it is in line with NCDC guidelines for international travel.
“Mr President and all of those on his delegation will be isolated in line with NCDC guidelines for international travel.”
He also revealed that the President and all those who accompanied him on the trip did the mandatory PCR test on Friday August 13, and will undergo the second test days later.
