Nigeria’s vice president, Yemi Osinbajo, is currently observing self-isolation, a statement from his office said on Tuesday.

Spokesperson of Mr Osinbajo, Laolu Akande, said in a tweet that his principal has continued “his work from the home office, as he is in self-isolation in accordance with NCDC protocols.”

The statement also said the vice president on Monday conducted his meetings via video conferencing, while observing social distancing.

It is unclear why Mr Osinbajo is in self-isolation but feelers suggest that he might have had contact with top Nigerian officials who have tested positive to the contagion.

A number of top government officials and their aides have been reported to have contracted the COVID-19 disease.

Apart from the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, has also tested positive to the virus.

As of now, Nigeria has recorded 44 cases, of which one has died and two discharged.

Citizens have been advised to observe high respiratory hygiene and physical distancing while the federal and state governments have rolled out different policies in the past few days to curb the spread of the ailment.
