Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, has said that there is nothing extraordinary telling those who attended Abba Kyari’s funeral including him, to distance themselves from the Presidential Villa.
This news came up after report that top aides of President Muhammadu Buhari are being denied access into the Presidential Villa in Abuja after returning from the burial of late Chief of Staff to Buhari, Abba Kyari, on Saturday April 18.
Mallam Shehu said the directive was in line with the standard rules put in place by the National Center for Disease Control and the Federal Ministry of Health. Garba Shehu averred that the directive was effected to stop the spread of Coronavirus.
There is nothing extraordinary about those of us who attend Abba Kyari’s funeral being advised to distance ourselves from the Villa.
This is in line with the standard rules put in place by the National Center for Disease Control,@NCDCgov and the Federal Ministry of Health. You do these things to stop the spread of #Coronavirus.
For the most part, the Villa has operated digitally in the last few weeks so there is really nothing new to this.
