From Isa Dangana, Minna
Niger State has gone into prayer session to safeguard Governor Abubakar Sani Bello and other top shorts in government who presently have tested positive with COVID-19 pandemic.
The sad development has brought about government business being boycotted and people no longer visit seat of power.
Contrary to speculation that Sani-Bello contracted the disease from abroad, his Press Secretary, Mrs. Mary Noel-Berje debunked it, saying the governor was being treated in Minna.
The governor twittered: “I have tested positive for COVID-19. I am asymptomatic and generally okay but I am already self-isolating and receiving the best of care,” he said on his Twitter handle.
The government solicited for prayers from all and sundry for quick recovery of the governor.
