Bauchi state Governor, Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed has gone into self isolation following contact with the son of the former Vice President, Mohammed Atiku Abubakar last week.
This came as the result of the report from the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, that the son of the former Vice President, Mohammed Atiku Abubakar has tested positive to the Coronavirus upon his return from an international trip through Lagos.
The Governor, who recently returned from an official trip to Lagos, met with Mohammed Atiku Abubakar in the Aero Contractors aircraft where they shock hands and exchanged pleasantries.
A press release signed by the SSA Media to the Governor, Muktar Gidado indicated that the governor did not exhibited any symptom of the disease, but based on the recommendation of the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control, he will remain in isolation in order to avoid the risk of spread of the disease.
Muktar Gidado said that the blood sample of the governor has been taken for clinical test, stressing that for the period of the test, the governor and his entourage will remain in isolation pending the outcome of the clinical result.
