Abba Kyari: FCTA Clears Air On Viral Video From Gudu Cementary.



The Health and Human Services Secretariat of the FCTA has noted with concern the video trending on social media, showing a man pulling off his PPE unprofessionally after participating in the burial of the late Malam Abba Kyari.

Bashir Ahmad, Media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to a viral video showing an NCDC official dumping his personal protective outfit on the ground after the burial of Abba Kyari.

The viral video had raised concerns on social media over the careless disposal of the protective outfit amid Coronavirus pandemic.

However, Ahmad took to his Twitter page describing the video as misleading, adding that although some officials removed their PPE at the cemetery they were all burnt at a later time.

He stressed that a dedicated staff took all the PPE suits disposed at the cemetery, put them in a casket and used a chemical to burn them

Ahmad added that the area where Kyari was buried was also disinfected.

His tweet read: “The video of an NCDC official dumping his PPE is misleading. True, some officials removed their PPEs at the cemetery, but a dedicated staff went around, picked all and put them in a casket and then used a chemical to burn them.

“They also disinfected the environment, immediately.”
