Reports have brought news of Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari being really sick after returning from a trip abroad. There are suspicions that he may have been affected by the Coronavirus. The Nigerian President’s Chief of Staff is said to have travelled to Germany and Egypt from which he returned this week. 327 cases of Coronavirus have been confirmed in Egypt with the death toll at 14, while Germany has 29,056 infections and 123 deaths.
Abba Kyari is said to have been coughing seriously but still attended meetings with President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osibanjo, ministers and several other members of the Federal Executive Council. The Chief of Staff was accompanied by the Executive Chairman of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, Prof James Momoh to both Egypt and Germany.
Information of Abba Kyari’s suspected infection with the virus came just after a leaked memo showed him telling Nigerian legislators who are recent returnees of foreign trips to submit themselves for Coronavirus testing.
