COVID-19: Buhari’s Daughter in Isolation as First Lady’s office on Shutdown for 2 Weeks

Nigeria’s First Lady and wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Mrs Aisha Buhari, on Thursday announced that one of her daughters who just arrived back from the United Kingdom (UK) is on self-isolation.


The First Lady also announced the shutdown of her office for two weeks, “with immediate effect.”


Mrs Buhari, in a statement on her verified Twitter handle @aishambuhari, said that the self-isolation was based on the advice of the Nigerian Federal Government Ministry of Health and agencies.


Mrs Buhari said in her Tweet: “Good afternoon Nigerians. Earlier today my daughter returned from the UK being among the high Burden listed countries of COVID-19. Based on the advice of the Hon. Minister of Health, Presidential Task force on COVID – 19 and that of NCDC, 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.”


Announcing the shutdown of her office for two weeks, Mrs. Buhari said that those on essential duties would be working from home.


According to her, “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. I commend the North Western Governors including Niger and Kwara on preventive measures taken to curb the spread of COVID-19 at their security meeting yesterday in Kaduna.


“Let’s keep following the advice of the Federal Ministry of Health and the NCDC, which encourages maintaining social distancing, high hygiene culture through regular washing of hands with soaps and sanitizers. Let’s adopt preventive measures and ensure the safety of our families and that of General public.

“We will overcome the Covid-19 pandemic if we all take the necessary precautions at the same time! God bless you all. Long live Federal Republic of Nigeria!”
