COVID-19: Gov Mohammed, who shook hands with former VP’s son, tests positive

The reverberation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) contacted by the son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar is coming home to roost as the Bauchi State Governor, Alhaji Bala Mohammed, has tested positive for coronavirus.

Governor Mohammed earlier said he met and shook hands while on the same flight from Lagos to Abuja with Mohammed, the son of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar. Mohammed tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday.

Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Mr Mukhtar Gidado, said in a  statement on Tuesday: “This is to inform the general public that the result of the six initial tests carried out by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control on His Excellency, Senator Bala Mohammed, his family and aides that accompanied him to Lagos is out.

“Of the six initial tests carried out, one sample was confirmed to be positive of COVID-19. The positive result happened to be that of His Excellency, Senator Bala Mohammed, the Executive Governor of Bauchi State.

“At this point, it should be noted that the Governor is in self-isolation as his doctors and officials from the NCDC have taken full charge of his quarantine.”
