NEWSCOVID-19: ‘Shut down Aso Rock’ – Nigerians react to Abba Kyari’s alleged Coronavirus’ testPublished 48 mins ago on March 24, 2020By Seun Opejobi
Amid the continued spread of Coronavirus, some Nigerians have called for the shutting down of the Presidential Villa, Aso Rock.
The call was made in reaction to reports that President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari tested positive for COVID-19.
Kyari had recently travelled to Germany where he met with officials of Siemens in Munich on the Nigerian electricity expansion programme.
According to the report, he returned exactly one week later on Saturday, March 14th, but did not show any symptoms.
Kyari’s test result reportedly necessitated the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, to conduct the same test on Buhari which turned out negative.
However, comments by some Nigerians have called for the shutting down of Aso Rock.
@DemolaRewaju: “Abba Kyari should be sacked. This is gross irresponsibility and negligence, exposing the President of the Federal Republic to a Virus after being exposed to it in 2 countries demands nothing short of immediate sack as CoS. But the question is: can Abba Kyari sack Abba Kyari?”
@DrOlufunmilayo: “Moh Atiku has tested positive. Bauchi State Governor waiting for his results. Abba Kyari said to be exposed. ALL these people have met with other govt officials in the last one week. Whoever has access to Aso Rock should let them know, when this shit hits, it will burn them too.”
