VP Osinbajo Tests Negative For Coronavirus, 16 APC Governors At Risk After Meeting Abba Kyari 3

Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has tested negative for coronavirus, barely 24 hours after he went into self-isolation.

This is coming following fears he could have physically interacted with some persons like President Muhahammdu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, who tested positive for the virus.

In a tweet by Senator Babafemi Ojudu, Special Adviser to the President of Nigeria on Political Matters, said the Vice President results have returned negative.

“Vice President Yemi Osinbajo tested negative,” he tweeted on Wednesday morning.

The villa immediately began a gradual lockdown after three workers in Kyari’s office reportedly tested positive to the virus.

The presidency has directed that non-essential staff and those who had come in contact with Kyari to stay away for two weeks.

Widely regarded as the most powerful man in the Buhari presidency, Kyari’s position meant he had daily contacts with almost every important personality who came to the Presidential Villa, and coronavirus thrives on contacts.

According to a list drawn by the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) on Tuesday, Kyari has recently come in contact with the vice president, all the ministers, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, all the 16 All Progressives Congress (APC) governors who attended the APC leadership peace meeting on March 16 where Oshiomhole’s case was decided, Bayelsa State governor who also visited the president on March 17, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, who also met with the president on March 16, all who attended the inauguration of the Emergency Number 112 by the president on March 19, all staff of the Villa and all the Heads of Security agencies.

Others are all the Service Chiefs who visited him for the security briefing, all the Heads of Departments, Agencies and Parastatals, diplomats and foreign dignitaries, security personnel around the Villa, particularly those close to the Chief of Staff, the family, personal and domestic members of staff of Kyari, including his driver and orderly, any other friend, associate, a colleague of his who may have met with him within the time, every member of the presidency cabal who may have met with him for strategy within the time; president of Guinea Bissau and all his entourage and any other Nigerian who must have visited him within the time.

The impact of Abba Kyari’s positive test to coronavirus may only become clear with the passing days.

Meanwhile, Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed has also tested positive to coronavirus following his contact with Mohammed Atiku Abubakar, son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
