Lauretta Onochie reveals why Buhari doesn't wear face mask

Presidential aide, Lauretta Onochie has revealed why the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), does not wear a face mask.

Recall that the Nigerian Center for Disease Control, NCDC, advised Nigerians to always wear a face mask when they find themselves around other people.

Recently, photos have surfaced showing Buhari not wearing a face mask while communicating with people who do.

This has been seen by Nigerians to mean the president isn't following the NCDC guideline on face masks.

In reaction, Lauretta Onochie tweeted: "PRES @MBuhari IS NOT BREAKING RULES! Expert Medical Protocol is that if you are in your safe environment, you dont need to wear a mask Those visiting you MUST wear masks to ensure they leave no droplets in your environment Wearing of masks is mostly to protect people around us".
