The Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari’s on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, on Saturday disclosed that the president is not breaking any rule or law by not wearing face mask.
Recall that some people have complained that the president has never seen with face mask, even as other people around him use face masks.
Onochie took to her Twitter page to educate Nigerians about what medical protocol says about wearing face masks. She said that there is no need for face mask when you in a safe environment, hence Buhari’s reason for not wearing it.
She explained that only visitors need to wear face mask when one is in a safe environment so that they will not leave droplets in the environment.
According to her: “PRES @MBuhari IS NOT BREAKING RULES!
”Expert Medical Protocol is that if you are in your safe environment, you don’t need to wear a mask
“Those visiting you MUST wear masks to ensure they leave no droplets in your environment.
“Wearing masks is mostly to protect people around us.”

Meanwhile, the same scenario played out when the president of Guinea Bissau visited Aso Rock on Saturday, he was on his face mask, but president Muhammadu Buhari was not using. The explanation from Onochie has given answers as to why Buhari never uses face mask.
