One of the daughters of President Muhammadu Buhari is now on self-isolation after arriving from the United Kingdom due to raging Coronavirus pandemic.
Aisha Buhari, wife of the president disclosed this on Thursday on her twitter handle.
She said her daughter returned from the UK being among the burden countries of Coronavirus and placed herself on self-isolation even though she did not develop any symptoms of the disease.
“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 Taskforce on COVID – 19 and that of NCDC, she is on Self Isolation, not because she displayed any symptoms of the Covid-19,” she said.
The Federal Government had urged those coming into the country from the endemic nations to self-isolate for 14 days to see if they would develop symptoms of the deadly disease in order to halt its spread.
However, Aisha Buhari urged Nigerians to adopt preventive measures and ensure the safety of their families and that of the 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 the Federal Republic of Nigeria
“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,” she said.
