The Kogi State Governor has reacted to the speculations that he has tested positive for the corona virus.
A viral photo surfaced on social media showing Governor Bello exchanging a handshake with Abba Kyari, President Muhammadu Buhari’s chief of staff who has tested positive for the virus.
There have been several claims that the Kogi state governor met with Kyari after the latter returned from Germany, a high-risk country for Covid-19.
However, a video later surfaced, Wednesday where Governor Bello said those wishing that he contact the disease would be infected with HIV/Aids.
In the short clip that has since gone viral on social media, the Kogi state governor said he is hale and hearty and challenged anybody doubting him to the boxing ring, assuring that he would emerge victoriously.
In the Governors voice :
“I gat no COVID. Those who wish me to have COVID will have HIV. I am good, hale and hearty. I challenge everybody to the boxing ring,”
Governor Bello has taken the decision to self-isolate following his presence at the Nigeria Governors’ Forum meeting which was held on Wednesday, March 18.
The meeting was attended by a lot of governors, including Bala Mohammed of Bauchi, who has tested positive for Covid-19.
Mary Noel Berje, Governor Bello’s media aide, said the Niger state governor has been tested and is now awaiting his status as he self-isolates.
