The daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, who returned from the United Kingdom (UK) on Wednesday, has gone into self-isolation.
First Lady, Hajia Aisha Buhari, revealed this in a thread of tweets on her verified Tweeter handle, @aishambuhari.
The First Lady clarified that her daughter’s self-isolation was not because she had displayed any symptom identifiable with Coronavirus (COVID-19), but a safeguard measure.
The First Lady, who used the tweets to encourage Nigerians to be self-conscious and avoid exposure to the spiraling pandemic, said she had already shut her office down for two weeks.
The tweets read: “Good afternoon Nigerians, early today (Thursday) 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 Task force on COVID – 19 and that of NCDC (National Center for Disease Control), she is on self Isolation, not because she displayed any symptoms of 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
