Coronavirus: Buhari directs NCDC to recall retired staff

President Buhari has directed all recently retired staff of the NCDC to return to work.

The directive is meant to boost the manpower at the public health agency which is coordinating the national response of the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak in the country. He also gave other directives to help the country combat the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak.

Mr Buhari said he has been receiving updates on the country’s response to Covid-19.

“Over the last few days I have received extensive briefings on the state of the nation as it relates to the Covid-19 pandemic, from the relevant Federal Government agencies as well as the Lagos State Government,” he said.

Since the outbreak of the disease in Nigeria, Mr Buhari, unlike the presidents of many other countries, has not publicly addressed the nation.
