The presidency says the government did not breach the protocols put in place by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the Federal Ministry of Health on social distancing, during the burial of Mallam Abba Kyari as speculated in some quarters.
A statement from the senior special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu said the burial marks the end of all ceremonies as there will be no condolence visits to family and the Presidency.
Mallam Shehu said well-wishers and all other Nigerians are instead advised to pray for the repose of the soul of the late Chief of Staff.
He said condolence register will be opened at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) from Sunday for those who are able to use the window permitted for movement by the FCT administration.
The remains of the late Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari, arrived in Abuja Saturday morning from Lagos and was buried at Gudu Cemetery after funeral prayers at his residence.
