By Ismaila Chafe

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Sunday prayed for the quick recovery of Geoffrey Onyeama, Minister of Foreign Affairs, after he tested positive for COVID-19 and went into self isolation.

Buhari expressed his good wishes in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja.

The president described the minister as a strong pillar of his administration.

He commended him for working tirelessly to stem the spread of Coronavirus in the country as a member of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.

Buhari also lauded Onyeama for ensuring the safety of Nigerians abroad.

“The country is eternally grateful to Geoffrey Onyeama for his diligence in attracting international support for Nigeria to defeat the Coronavirus pandemic and boost the economy.

“I wish him speedy recovery,” he said.

Onyeama had earlier on Sunday disclosed, via his Twitter handle, that he tested positive for the Coronavirus and has gone on self isolation.

He said: “Did my fourth COVID-19 test yesterday at the first sign of a throat irritation and unfortunately, this time, it came back positive.

“That is life! Win some, loose some. Heading for isolation in a health facility and praying for the best.”


  1. With all due respect to the readers, P M News and President Trump,
    All those people involved with President Buhari as Abba Kyari, and other cabals to share $30 Billion with DNC, Hillary Clinton Campaign, Obama foundation, Kerry foundation and Clinton Foundation since 2015 are dying one by one. Yesterday one organization in Nigeria claimed that the coronavirus infected Abba Kyari was acyually recovering and signed on to come back to as C O S. Eliminating partners of alleged crimes to avoid the partners becomes witness, we are afraid that Jeoffrey Oneyamma is going to be the next AbbaKyari in the hands of Buhari. A word is good for the wise. Stay tuned.
