Osagie Ehanire, minister of health, says he was in Aso Rock to answer questions President Muhammadu Buhari had to ask on COVID-19 in Nigeria. 

TheCable had reported that Ehanire, alongside Chikwe Ihekweazu, director-general of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), met with Buhari at his residence in the state house on Saturday afternoon to brief him on developments concerning the disease in the country.

Speaking to journalists after the meeting, Ehanire said they answered questions the president asked on the health sector in general.

He added that they also briefed Buhari on the necessary measures to be taken to curb the spread of the virus in the country.


“It is to answer a few questions that His Excellency had about the health sector which we took the opportunity to explain further. The takeaway is that we have been able to clarify a few things in question regarding the state we are in on the coronavirus disease outbreak in Nigeria,” Ehanire said.

“Well, I explained those problems, the situation and what the projection would be going forward and the measures we think would be very necessary at this time.”

There are currently 89 confirmed coronavirus cases across 10 states and the federal capital territory (FCT) in Nigeria.
