President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived Bamako, Mali for the peace mission by the ECOWAS Heads of states.
The president and other West African leaders are currently in the Malian capital to find a solution to the worsening political crisis in the francophone country.
The president was however for the first time since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic sighted with a nose mask.
Mr. Bayo Omoboriowo, the president’s personal photographer shared the president’s photograph depicting his arrival at the Malian capital.
Omoboriowo captioned the photograph as “@MBuhari arrives Bamako, Mali for the peace mission by the ECOWAS Head of states. 23rd July, 2020.”
The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 had recommended the compulsory use of face mask while in public as one of the guidelines meant to curtail further spread of the virus in the country.
But while visitors to the Presidential Villa are always seen with face masks, Buhari has never been seen with one, until today that he arrived Bamako, the Malian capital.
