Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has joined other world leaders in wishing British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson quick recovery from COVID-19. This is coming a day after he was admitted to intensive care unit following his testing positive for the novel coronavirus.
A statement on Tuesday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, read in part:
“On behalf of the government and people of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari wishes Prime Minister Boris Johnson a quick recovery and restoration to full health.
“President Buhari’s sympathy and solidarity are with the British leader as he battles COVID-19 personally, and with the British people as their country battles the devastating effects of the pandemic.
“President Buhari prays that Prime Minister Johnson will soon be well enough to resume his great leadership of his country at this most trying time in global history.”
Mr. Johnson is the most prominent world leader infected with the dreaded disease. He tested positive for COVID-19 on March 27, 2020, and immediately got admitted to St Thomas’ Hospital, London.
