Didn’t Mallam Abba Kyari Isolated Himself Upon His Return from Germany, Find Out?

It is not a news that Mallam Abba Kyari is Coronavirus posiive, the news and question many are asking is that why didn’t he self-isolate upon coming back from Germany.

Abba Kyari, chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, didn't self-isolate after a politician foreign trip because Germany and therefore the UK were yet to be designated high-risk countries requiring self-isolation, family sources have told TheCable.

This is often contrary to insinuations that he refused to self-isolate on his arrival as advised by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

The president’s chief assistant was on Monday diagnosed with the Covid-19 disease which he's thought to possess contracted on his the trip.

“Abba was in Germany and therefore the UK from 8th to 12th of March. He arrived Abuja on the 13th. As at that date, neither Germany nor UK had been designated by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) as high-risk destinations requiring self-isolation,” a loved one , who spoke on the condition that he wouldn't be named, told TheCable.

“In fact, Germany was designated on the 16th and therefore the UK on the 17th. Both were after his arrival on the 13th. to mention he breached the NCDC advisory is evidently inaccurate.

“I’m aware Abba has volunteered handy over his passports to the ministry of health and NCDC for a verification of his travel dates.”

He said if the chief of staff had anything to cover , he wouldn't have written to the national assembly leaders to complain about the failure of their members to subject themselves to serious checks.

“Abba was more concerned about the abuse of power within the bid to affect the challenge. That also presupposes that he couldn’t have written that letter if he had anything to cover ,” he added.

He frowned upon the narrative being pushed by “those hooked in to seeing the rear of Abba and who have seen this as a chance to continue their continued war against” him.

“Abba didn’t break any guidelines. If anything in the least , he might be accused of throwing himself at the tasks given to him by the principal,” he said.

“While these eternal plotters are snoozing, he has been busy working for Nigeria. within the end, our lives are within the hands of Allah. There are many of us celebrating and gloating today who will probably still catch the virus or have already caught it. That’s the irony of life.”


Another loved one , who also asked to not be named, told TheCable that the chief of staff is “in high spirits” in self-isolation.

“I am in-tuned with Abba by phone and he's considerably in elation . he's more moved by the messages of goodwill from well wishers than the standard negative stories out there,” he told TheCable.

“Up till now, he has not shown any symptoms aside from occasional coughing, so there's no other treatment aside from addressing the cough. He doesn't have any fever and doesn't have any breathing difficulty.

“It is merely if he exhibits serious symptoms or becomes seriously sick that he are going to be moved to the Gwagwalada quarantine centre. a part of the management strategy of the govt is that since symptoms can resolve on their own, only those that actually need emergency attention are going to be moved to the quarantine so as to not overwhelm the hospitals.

“Ironically, he was very active on Saturday and was holding meetings on the way to address the outbreak of the coronavirus in Nigeria.

“Abba’s primary concern was how Nigeria can adopt a methodical approach to managing the crisis as health systems even within the most advanced countries are easily overwhelmed.

“If nearly as good because the Italian health system is that they are during this big mess, you'll imagine anything near that magnitude in Nigeria.

“He was more concerned about the amount of ventilators and ICUs within the country and asking questions on different scenarios, and what and what's needed.”
