Nigeria's seat of power Aso Rock is on partial lockdown according to Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president on media and publicity.
The presidential spokesman disclosed this during an interactive session with state house correspondents on Wednesday, March 25.
According to The Cable, Adesina said things are on low key in Nigeria at present and the same thing affected the presidential villa.
He also said the federal executive council (FEC) meetings were suspended indefinitely because of the numbers of participants.
Going further, he rejoiced with President Muhammadu Buhari over the outcome of his COVID-19 test which turns out negative.
He, however, said that testing positive to coronavirus does not mean death sentence. He said they will be treated and they would come out well.

This was disclosed by the commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso.
He said the attention of the government had been drawn to news reports that Lagos was on lockdown.
This followed Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s update on the steps taken to curtail the spread of coronavirus.
According to Omotoso, the impression created by such reports was erroneous.
He said the state was not on lockdown, in spite of the stringent measures introduced by the government.
