The social media aide of President Muhammadu Buhari, Lauretta Onochie, has revealed why he does not wear a face mask despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Responding to those who hold the position that the President was breaking medical experts’ rule Onochie on Saturday said the President does not break any rule by not wearing the face mask despite guidelines stipulated by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.

In a tweet, Onochie said that expert medical protocol states that there is no need for face mask when in a safe environment, hence Buhari’s reason for not wearing it.

She explained that the rule stressed that only those visiting must wear a face mask to ensure they don’t leave behind droplets in a safe environment.

She wrote: “PRES @MBuhari IS NOT BREAKING RULES! Expert Medical Protocol is that if you are in your safe environment, you don’t need to wear a mask.

“Those visiting you MUST wear masks to ensure they leave no droplets in your environment.

“Wearing masks is mostly to protect people around us.”

Recall that President Buhari tested negative for coronavirus in his last test after his former chief of staff, Abba Kyari, tested positive and subsequently died from it.
