Governor Nasiru Ahmed El-Rufai of Kaduna state has debunked insinuations that he was free of the dreaded COVID-19 infection.
The governor, on his twitter handle, said he had not been cleared of COVID-19.
Some residents along Kawo Road near the old Kawo market in Kaduna had earlier alleged that they sighted someone like El-Rufa’i in the area, near his late uncle’s house indicating that the governor’ was okay.
However, the governor in his tweet said: “Earlier Wednesday 10 am-2 pm, I took a few hours during isolation to chair a virtual meeting of the State Executive Council.”
“I haven’t been cleared of COVID-19 yet and will personally announce when confirmed negative. Ignore all fake news even if you like it.-@elrufaiKADUNA UPDATE: I am grateful to our team ably led by the Deputy Governor for keeping the Government going without me.
“I am super proud of all our Commissioners, SSG, Senior aides, Advisers, Assistants, security agency and other government officials for a job well done,” he said.
