While poor Nigerians are still battling with Coronavirus in unkept, abandoned and poor medical centers and hospitals, the Chief-of-Staff to the President, Abba Kyari has been sighted at Wellington Hospital in London.
Wellington Hospital is the largest independent hospital in the United Kingdom, and part of HCA International hospital group.
According to Rootv, A highly placed source disclosed that the “President’s Chief-of-Staff is receiving medical attention at Wellington Hospital but his medical condition is deteriorating haven tested positive to COVID-19.” the source said.
While the Presidency has not disclosed the status of Kyari who was widely reported to have tested positive to Coronavirus, he was initially moved to Lagos for treatment before it was decided that he should be flown to London.
Just after Nigeria recorded its first case of the deadly virus in February 2020, Abba Kyari had visited Germany and Egypt in company of the Minister of Power, Saleh Mamman where they met Siemens officials over the power deal signed with the company.
According to ROOTV, Kyari’s illness informed the decision to redeploy the Permanent Secretary of the State, Jalal Arabi on the order of the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari.
It would be recalled that a voice note had gone viral on the 26th of March 20202 where it was alleged that the President and his Chief of Staff where flown out of the country at midnight. The Presidency, however, debunked this saying it was the handiwork of mischief-makers.
