Despite Omicron COVID-19 Concerns Buhari Receives South African President Ramaphosa n Aso Rock

Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari has received his South African counterpart, Cyril Ramaphosa, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja despite concerns generated by the newly detected COVID-19 Omnicron variant.

Ramaphosa arrived at the Villa around 10 am on Wednesday and was received by Buhari. He, thereafter, inspected a guard of honour and was given a 21-gun salute.

The visit of the South African president comes barely hours after the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control confirmed the first three cases of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 in Nigeria, saying they are linked to passengers from South Africa.
