Osagie Ehanire Silent On Question About Abba Kyari’s Whereabouts



Kyari had, during a letter he wrote to the general public on Sunday, confirmed that he tested positive for coronavirus last week and would be in Lagos on Monday for further tests supported medical advice.

The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, had on Tuesday said contrary to reports that Kyari was at the Mainland infectious disease Hospital (IDH) isolation centre in Lagos, he didn't know his whereabouts within the state.

The Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, yesterday in Abuja at the third joint national briefing of the Presidential Taskforce Force on COVID-19, was, however, silent when asked about Kyari.

“There were few cases of reports or some VIPs who trivialised what the authorities were doing and that we got reports that some VIPs refused to have their temperature taken or to fill the forms,” he said.

Kyari within the letter claimed that he has made his care arrangements to avoid further burdening the general public health system, which faces numerous pressures. “I have made my very own care arrangements to avoid further burdening the general public health system, which faces numerous pressures.

Like many others which will test also positive, I even have not experienced high fever or other symptoms related to this new virus and are working from home. I hope to be back at my desk very soon.


I have a team of young, professional, knowledgeable and patriotic colleagues, whose dedication has been beyond the decision of duty, who still work seven days every week , with no time of the day spared. we'll still serve the President and other people of Nigeria, as we've for the past five years,” he noted within the letter.
