Personal Assistant to President Buhari on Social media, Lauretta Onochie, has replied critics on why the president doesn’t wear face mask.
The NCDC, Ministry of Health, and the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 have continuously advised Nigerians to wear face mask to prevent getting infected with the Coronavirus.
President Buhari who has engaged in several meetings since the outbreak of Covid-19 has not been wearing face mask.
Lauretta Onochie in defence of president Buhari , said that expert medical protocol states that there is no need for face mask when in a safe environment, hence Buhari’s reason for not wearing it.
