Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha Buhari, is at loggerhead with the Nigerian authorities again calling on police in the country to release her staff still in their custody in order not to expose them to the danger of Coronavirus.
She also called for stricter measures in the implementation of COVID-19 guidelines.
Her comment follows the increasing rate of confirmed cases recorded in Nigeria in the past few days.
The First Lady also urged the police to put those who disobey the COVID-19 restriction to undergo 14 days of mandatory isolation.
On Thursday, the Nigeria Center for Disease Control, NCDC, recorded 661 COVID-19 cases, the highest so far since the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus.
That Covid-19 is real and still very much around in our nation is not in doubt. Consequently, I call on all relevant Government Agencies to enforce the Quarantine Act signed by Mr. President and ensure no one is found violating this law and the NCDC guidelines
