coronavirus

Nigeria’s elites would seem to be already disproportionately affected by the coronavirus. As of April 2, there are reported 184 cases of the virus in the country.

This includes 162 active, 20 recovered, and 2 dead. These are still early days for the disease in Nigeria. But, of the relatively small number of cases in Nigeria, one is Abba Kyari, President Muhammadu Buhari’s chief of staff, four are state governors, and one is the son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar. The first death attributed to Coronavirus was that of a senior executive at the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation. Nigerian elites love to travel, and some of the victims appear to have been infected in Egypt and Europe.
