325

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) have charged President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately address the nation on the status of the Presidential Villa, in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP allege that even though President Muhammadu Buhari had tested negative for the Coronavirus, there is public anxiety over his health and that of Aso Rock staff, that needs to be doused.

Ologbondiyan noted that an address on the situation in the Presidential Villa will further relieve the public of their concerns about the status of certain key officials, who have not been visible in the last few days.

The PDP also advised Nigerians to strictly adhere to directives by relevant agencies of government on health safety measures, including hand washing and social distancing.

On their part, the CUPP said, “We call that the best possible hands and all available resources be deployed to ensure the safety of Mallam Abba Kyari. He is obviously a resource to the Presidency and a trusted confidant of the President and his wellbeing will keep the President in a good frame of mind to diligently lead our country in these very trying times.”

“The vice president, all ministers, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Head of Service, all APC governors who attended the APC leadership peace meeting, the Bayelsa State governor who also visited the President, the Speaker of the House of Representatives who also met with the President on March 16, all who attended the commissioning of the emergency number 112 by the President on 19th March and indeed all who have visited the Villa or met with the Chief of Staff to the President since that time.”
