Aisha Buhari, the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, has joined others in sympathizing with the former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, after he announced that his son tested positive for coronavirus on Sunday night.
Although the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, is yet to confirm the case, the former vice president made the announcement about his son’s status via Twitter.
“My son has tested positive to coronavirus. @NCDCGov has been duly informed, and he has been moved to Gwagwalada Specialist Teaching Hospital in Abuja for treatment and management,” he tweeted.
“I will appreciate it if you have him in your prayers. Stay safe, coronavirus is real.”
The First Lady prayed for the recovery of the politician’s son.
“Your Excellency, It’s with deep sense of concern that I extend my sincere prayers towards the quick recovery of your dear son. Allah renu en Amin,” she tweeted.
Oby Ezekwesili, the two-time former Minister of Solid Minerals and Education, has also sympathized with the former vice president.
“That former Vice President Atiku Abubakar informed the public that his son tested positive to Coronavirus, is hugely helpful to everyone. Lagos State Government and Federal Ministry of Health and all of us should leverage this to create more awareness that this is real,” she said.
