COVID-19: Buhari, Health Minister Meet In Abuja

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), and the Minister of Health, Prof Osagie Ehanire, have just rounded off a meeting at the State House, Abuja.

In attendance was the Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Dr Chikwe Ikekweazu.

The photographs of the meeting, just uploaded online by the State House, showed Buhari and the other officials observing social distancing during the meeting.

Findings indicated that the official came to give Buhari updates on the raging coronavirus pandemic.

Nigeria now has 81 confirmed cases with three discharged and one death.

The meeting came amid speculation that the President had been flown out of the country for COVID-19 treatment.

He had earlier on Monday tested negative to the virus but Buhari was yet to address the nation since it recorded its first confirmed case in Lagos State.
