President Muhammadu Buhari has been spotted wearing a face mask for the first time publicly, as he arrived in Mali for the ECOWAS peace mission.
This is the first time the president would be wearing a face mask publicly since Nigeria reported its first case of COVID-19 infection in February.
West African leaders, including Buhari, arrived in Bamako, the Malian capital on Thursday, to find solution to the worsening political crisis in the Francophone country.
Despite the increase in Covid-19 cases in Nigeria, Buhari had continued to appear in meetings without wearing face masks. See more photos of him rocking the mask as he arrived Bamako, Mali.
