Meanwhile, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) are not interested in the well being of Nigerians.

The PDP spoke against the background that President Buhari was seen in public disregarding COVID-19 protocols on social distancing and the use of facemasks during his visit to Daura in Katsina State on Saturday.

It will be recalled that Buhari was in Daura to re-validate his APC membership status.

However, citing pictures from the event, the PDP on Sunday accused the President of violating his own executive order on COVID-19 which stipulates a 6-month jail term for defaulters.

The PDP in a series of tweets from its Twitter account said the President and his party’s violation of the protocols is a pointer to the fact that the current administration can’t be followed or trusted to lead the country right.
