President Muhammadu Buhari’s non-observance of the COVID-19 guidelines and protocol has been rationalized by his media aide.
This rationalization came after observations were made that the President has not been in the habit of wearing the face masks even at the last Federal Executive Council meetings and other engagements held at the Villa since the outbreak of coronavirus in Nigeria.
Explaining the non-usage of face mask by the President, his Personal Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, said there was no need for him to wear it since he is restricted to already fumigated State House.
According to her, expert medical protocol eliminates the need for face mask when in a safe environment; adding that only those visiting must wear a face mask to ensure they don’t leave behind droplets in a safe environment.
In a tweet, Onochie said: “President Muhammadu Buhari is NOT BREAKING RULES!”Expert Medical Protocol is that if you are in your safe environment, you don’t need to wear a mask.“
Those visiting you MUST wear masks to ensure they leave no droplets in your environment.”Wearing masks is mostly to protect people around us,” she tweeted.
