The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to address the country on the health and safety of those in the Presidential Villa following the COVID – 19 pandemic.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, made this known in a short statement on Tuesday.
The main opposition party urged the President to explain the health issues in the Villa following reports that Buhari ’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, had tested positive for coronavirus.
He said Nigerians, no matter how highly placed, should strictly adhere to directives by the relevant agencies of government on health safety measures, particularly relating to the isolation of persons returning from foreign trips.
Ologbondiyan, however, advised the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and other agencies to adopt stringent measures to isolate and monitor persons coming into the country as well as tracing and isolating those who had made contact with infected persons.
He said, “In this regard, the NCDC should move into the Presidential Villa and immediately track and isolate all those who had made contact with President Buhari ’s Chief of Staff, so as to check further spread of COVID -19 in our country.
“We call on Nigerians to remain vigilant and observe all health safety directives, including social distances, self -isolation, personal hygiene and prompt report for medical assistance in the case of any symptoms .”
Multiple reports have it that Abba Kyari and some of his staff have tested positive to the dreaded Coronavirus.
