President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said the Presidential Villa in Abuja is on partial lockdown.

Adesina stated this while speaking with State House correspondents on Wednesday.

The presidential spokesman also confirmed the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meetings were suspended indefinitely because it usually involves more than 50 people.

Adesina also spoke on the COVID-19 test of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Well, things are a bit on a low key, it doesn’t mean that the State House is shut down, it’s just that things are a bit on the low key just like the rest of the country.

“The rest of the country is also on a low key, there is partial lockdown in most parts of the country. So, what is happening at the State House can also be called a partial lockdown but not a complete lockdown,” he said.

Adesina also confirmed Buhari was tested for COVID-19.

“What did you hear about the result?” Adesina asked, to which the reporter responded: “They said it’s negative.”

Adesina then replied: “Good. So that calls for rejoicing with him. Anybody that does the test and test negative we will rejoice with that person. And anybody that does it and test positive, it’s not a death sentence.

“We also would pray along with the person, give the person our good will and best wishes and they will surely come out of it. Even the index case in Nigeria recovered and has been discharged. So God that has shown us mercy thus far and will continue to show that mercy. Anybody that test positive is not a death sentence, they will be attended to, they will be tested and they will be fine.”

There are currently 46 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Nigeria.
