Three days after Mallam Abba Kyari, Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari was reported to have tested positive to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Presidency has started fumigation of the nation’s seat of power, Aso Rock.
It was gathered that fumigation experts arrived at the Villa about 9.30am on Thursday to commence intensive fumigation of all the offices and environment of the Presidential Villa.
However, another information which has generated a heated controversy, was put out from the official handle of the presidency, suggesting that President Buhari was working in his office the same day the State House was being fumigated.
Meanwhile, a lot of Nigerians, who are still in doubt as to how the President Buhari could be working in an office the same day the whole Villa was being fumigated, are curious about the whereabouts of the President.
Also, they still hold the belief that the presidency must have tested positive to COVID-19 just like his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.
Some staff members in the Chief of Staff office who have self-isolated themselves when the test result of their boss was positive, have lamented that they were yet to be tested.
Recall that authorities at the State House through the office of Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity had on Tuesday pruned down the number of journalists covering the Villa as a precautionary measure to observe social distancing.
Staff were also scaled down by the management to reduce human traffic in and out of the Villa in bid to address spreading of Coronavirus pandemic, that had also infected some regime top officials.
A source in the Chief of Staff office lamented on Wednesday night that they were still waiting for the Nigeria Center for Disease Control, NCDC, to come and test their status after the result of Mallam Kyari was said to be positive.
