All masked except President Buhari. Photo Bayo Omoboriowo

President Muhammadu Buhari, along with First Lady, Aisha came out Sunday for the Eid-el-Fitri in Aso Rock, unmasked.

However, the first family blatantly breached COVID-19 rules when they surrounded the president for a photo.

There is no physical distancing of sort, a protocol prescribed by WHO and NCDC.

Caution was certainly thrown to the wind!

We expect Aso Rock to defend the seeming recklessness that endangers the President.
