Henceforth, Visitors To Aso Villa Will Be Tested For COVID, Says Presidency Nigeria

The presidency says visitors to the presidential villa in Abuja will be required to take rapid COVID tests before they would be allowed in.

Garba Shehu, presidential spokesperson, confirmed the development to state house correspondents in Abuja on Sunday.

Rapid COVID tests are designed to tell in a few minutes if someone is infected with the virus or not and is recommended for individuals with symptoms, high-risk populations, and healthcare or casual workers.

According to the spokesman, the new regulation became necessary due to the global spike in the rate of the COVID infections, especially the Omicron variant.

Shehu said every visitor, with the exception of some leaders, will be required to take the test free of charge at the entrance of the villa.

“Yes, a new regime of COVID-19 regulation has been put in place for all visitors to the Villa, not for Governors alone,” Shehu said.

“Every visitor to the Villa, not just those seeing the president, is now required to do a rapid test at the gate.
