COVID-19: For the first time, President Buhari wears face mask, arrives Bamako


President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has finally been spotted donning the face mask since the inception of the ravaging coronavirus pandemic in the country, as he arrived Bamako, Mali.

A picture shared by his personal photographer, Bayo Omoboriowo, today, shows the president adorning a face mask in Bamako, Mali.

Omoboriowo captioned the photograph as “@MBuhari arrives Bamako, Mali for the peace mission by the ECOWAS Head of states. 23rd July, 2020.”

The president went on a one-day visit to Mali on peace mission where he would meet with other African leaders to draw a political solution for the unrest rocking Mali.

Buhari has refused to use the face mask even when the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 had recommended the compulsory use of face mask while in public.

Femi Adesina, presidential spokesperson has consistently told journalists that the president had his private reason for not using the facemask.

The use of facemask is one of the guidelines meant to mitigate the spread of coronavirus in the country.
