President Muhammadu Buhari has received a jab of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Buhari was inoculated by his personal physician on Saturday morning at the New Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The ceremony was witnessed by other top government officials.
Shortly after President Buhari took the jab, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo also received the vaccine which was administered to him by his chief personal physician.
Both leaders were later presented with electronic cards containing the details of their vaccinations by the Executive Director of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA), Faisal Shuaib.
The President and Vice President are the country’s first strategic leaders to take the vaccine after some frontline health workers at the treatment centre of the National Hospital, Abuja, were vaccinated on Friday.
