On Thursday, the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari, announced that her daughter who just recently returned from the United Kingdom is in self-isolation.
She also noted that she had shut down her office for two weeks as some of her staff who just returned from the UK are in self-isolation, adding that they would be working from home.
Read Mrs. Buhari’s statement posted on Twitter;
“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 Honourable Minister of Health, Presidential Task Force on COVID – 19 and that of National Centre for Disease Control, she is on self-isolation, not because she displayed any symptoms of the Covid-19 . Please I urge all parents to do the same if possible as prevention is better than cure.
“Similarly, I have shut down my office for two weeks with immediate effect, while essential staff can work from home as a result of some staff who recently returned from the UK .”
