President Buhari Closest Aide Contracts COVID-19
A close aide and Senior Special Assistant on Domestic Affairs to President Muhammadu Buhari, Sarki Abba, has reportedly tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19).
It was gathered that Abba had not been seen at the Presidential Villa since contracting the virus two weeks ago.
A source in the Presidency told SaharaReporters that those who had come in contact with him had also been asked to self-isolate.
“Abba tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks ago but his current status as we speak is unknown, whether he has tested negative or not.
“All I know is there’s a conspiracy of silence with regards to his status,” the source said.
Naija News recalls that President Buhari had in April lost his former Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari.
The late Abba Kyari, a close aide to the present and seen as a member of the presidential cabal, had died from coronavirus complications.
The death of Kyari had forced drastic safety measures to be adopted to protect the President, who has himself battled an undisclosed ailment and had visited UK several times in recent years for medical attention.
