The Chief-of-Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, who was recently confirmed positive to Coronavirus, code-named COVID-19, has been reportedly sighted at Wellington Hospital in London.
The Wellington Hospital, which is located in North London, is the largest independent hospital in the UK.
An authoritative source disclosed that the Kyari is currently receiving medical attention at Wellington Hospital but his medical condition is deteriorating following the positive test result to COVID-19.
While the Presidency has not disclosed the status of Kyari who was widely reported to have tested positive to Coronavirus, it was also gathered that 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.
It was also gathered that 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 2020 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.
