The Commissioner for Health Lagos State, Professor Akin Abayomi has said he was unaware of where President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari was in the state.
Kyari had last week tested positive to the dreaded Covid-19 pandemic. It was later rumoured that he had been flown outside the country to be treated of the disease. Some said he was flown to Cuba.
However, in a statement on Sunday, Kyari confirmed he tested positive to the novel coronavirus disease and had been working from home. He added that he would by Monday, be in Lagos to undergo “further tests and observations”.
But speaking during a briefing in Lagos on Tuesday, Abayomi said: “I’m not aware of the Chief of Staff’s itinerary, so I don’t know where he is, but I cannot tell where he is from our chat.
“We are exchanging information but I haven’t asked him for his location. He seems to be well and happy and we are exchanging information on strategic issues. It has been a long time since we talked about his health. I presume he has made a full recovery.”
The number of persons testing positive to the dreaded virus has continued to mount. According to the update on the disease released by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) on Tuesday night, 138 persons have been infected.
Two persons have died of the virus in the country, while nine have recovered from it.
