Bauchi Governor Bala Mohammed is now in self-isolation over fears of contracting coronavirus after his contact with the son of Atiku Abubakar, the state’s Chief of Staff, Ladan Salihu said.
Atiku made a public disclosure via his Twitter handle on Sunday evening about his son testing positive to the pandemic.
Reactions, mostly sympathies, have trailed the announcement since although the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, is yet to acknowledge the development.
Through his Twitter handle this afternoon, Dr. Salihu explained that Governor Mohammed, the Executive Governor of Bauchi State, alongside his entourage, met with the Vice President’s son while on flight from Lagos to Abuja.
He added that they all have also taken test and are expecting the result as at the time of this report.
Former director-general of Radio Nigeria, Ladan Salihu made the announcement via his Twitter handle.
He said, “Our Governor Bala Mohammed in self-isolation following contact with Atiku Abubakar’s Son. Yes. We were on the same flight from Lagos to Abuja. They shook hands and exchanged pleasantries. The gov and the rest of us have taken tests. The results will be negative Insha Allah.”
