Press Statement

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) charges President
Muhammadu Buhari to

douse widespread public anxieties by immediately addressing
the nation

on the status of the Presidential villa, in relation to the
COVID-19

pandemic.

The party’s demand is predicated on public apprehensions of
health

safety issues in the Villa following reports that President
Buhari’s

Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari, had tested positive to
the deadly

corona virus disease.

The PDP notes that though President Buhari was reported to
have tested

negative to the virus, it is yet imperative that he douses
public

tension by addressing a distressed nation on the status of
the Villa,

especially given that other officials, like Abba Kyari, had
travelled to

high-risk countries in the course of their duties.

The party notes that an address on the situation in the
Presidential

villa will further douse public concerns about the status of
certain key

officials, who have not been visible in the last few days.

The party stressed that Nigerians, no matter how highly
placed, should

strictly adhere to directives by relevant agencies of
government on

health safety measures, particularly as they relate to
isolation of

persons returning from foreign trips.

The PDP urged the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC)
and other

relevant agencies to adopt stringent measures to isolate and
monitor

persons coming into the country as well as track and equally
isolate

those who had made contact with infected persons.

In this regard, the NCDC should move into the Presidential
villa and

immediately track and isolate all those who had made contact
with

President Buhari’s Chief of Staff, so as to check further
spread of

COVID-19 in our country.

The party called on Nigerians to remain vigilant and observe
all health

safety directives, including social distances,
self-isolation, personal

hygiene and prompt report for medical assistance in the case
of any

symptoms.

The PDP expressed optimism that with a concerted effort by
all

Nigerians, our nation will overcome the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kola Ologbondiyan
