In a move, to stop the spread of the deadly coronavirus that has forced many Nigerian states into partial lockdown, the Presidency has begun intensive fumigation of the State House starting with the office of President Muhammadu Buhari.
This is coming after the president’s chief of staff, Abba Kyari, tested positive to the deadly virus. According to The Sun, fumigation experts arrived at the Villa about 9.30 am on Thursday, March 26, to commence the exercise, which would cover the entire Presidential Villa including, floors, corridors, and major pathways.
A presidential source speaking to the online publication said the experts who were dressed similarly to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) personnel came from Abuja city. The source said: “These people are not from the Villa.
They came from outside – from the town (Abuja city). They are dressed in complete white overalls, masked and wearing other protective gears. The dressing is similar to how the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control personnel wear their protective gears.”
It would be recalled that Aso Rock is on partial lockdown according to Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president on media and publicity. The presidential spokesman on Wednesday, March 25 said things are on low key in Nigeria at present and the same thing affected the presidential villa.
