She said that he son and some other members of staff also tested positive for coronavirus.⁣

The statement reads,

“Few moments ago this evening, I received my result from the tests earlier carried out on me by NCDC personnel on routine screening at Government House, Makurdi which returned that I, my son, and some staff are COVID-19 positive.⁣

We have from this moment, gone into total isolation as required by the protocol and would immediately begin the management treatment as advised by medical experts.⁣

While I have taken the responsibility to personally call everyone I can recall to have had recent contact with me to go for testing, I advice everyone who has had close contact with me in the last 2 weeks and the public to go for screening and testing.⁣

I wish to reiterate that being COVID-19 positive is not a death sentence as evident by the many recoveries recorded thus far so there is no need to panic, but we should continue to be responsible in our actions so as to keep others safe.⁣

I am encouraging people to take preventive measures to be protected and be safe by observing the primary protocols. Stay safe!! COVID-19 is real.”⁣
