The lawmaker representing Osun Central District in the National Assembly, Ajibola Basiru, is self-isolating after his trip to the United Kingdom.

Basiru stated this while reacting to the letter of the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, calling on all lawmakers who travelled to the abroad to follow the right measures.

The Chief of Staff in the letter also accused the lawmakers of violating screening procedures at the airports.

Bashir, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Diaspora, Non-Governmental Organisations and Civil Society Organisations, said that he had not attended any public event since his return.

He tweeted, “Contrary to the reports that all the Senators that travelled to the United Kingdom for the Petroleum Oil and Gas seminar have not complied with the protocol on precautionary steps on COVID-19, I have been in self-isolation since I returned from the UK.”

“So, I have not been to the National Assembly or attended any business or function. Also, the National Center for Disease Control contacted my next of kin earlier today to know how I am faring. I am in good health and enjoying enough rest at home.”
