The decralation of the Two COVID-19 cases in Kogi State was a beautiful fraud. The alleged COVID-19 Patient was an Imam who was stung by bees and was rushed to FMC before moving to Abuja. The man who was allegedly tested positive showed no symptom of COVID-19.
14 Members of his family have been traced and tested but turned out negative.
NCDC has said all States of the federation must have COVID-19 Even when it was only in Lagos, Abuja, Ogun and Kano States but reject in its entity this fraudulent inclusion of Kogi State on COVID-19 log.
We have capacity for testing. We are well prepared to curtail and manage any case of COVID-19 but we will not accept fictitious declaration of positive cases. We will continue to ensure the safety of our people.
