Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari’s Personal Assistant on Social media, Lauretta Onochie has revealed why the president doesn’t wear face mask.
Onochie in a social media post on Twitter, defended the President, saying that he has done nothing wrong by not wearing bose masks because his environment has remained safe.
Onochie insisted that President Buhari was not breaking any rules by not wearing face mask. She explained that the rule stressed that only those visiting must wear face mask to ensure they don’t leave behind droplets in a safe environment.
The NCDC, Ministry of Health, and the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 have repeatedly advised Nigerians to wear a face mask to prevent getting infected with the Coronavirus.
President Buhari has engaged in several meetings since the Coronavirus pandemic started and pictures shared from those meetings show him as the only one not wearing face mask.
Backing the president, Onochie pointed out that expert medical protocol states that there is no need for face mask when in a safe environment, hence Buhari’s reason for not wearing it.
