Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, has gone into self-isolation after he had contact with a man who tested positive to COVID-19.

The Governor Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mukhtar Gidado disclosed it in a statement.

According to him, Governor Mohammed took the decision after the contact, the son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, was confirmed to have been infected by the virus.

He, therefore, stated that he had gone into self-isolation in line with the directive of the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control.

The statement read in part, “This is to inform the general public that his Excellency, Bala Mohammed, has gone into self-isolation.

“This development is sequel to a report from the NCDC that the son of former VP of Nigeria was tested negative for the coronavirus upon his return from an international trip through Lagos.

“It would be recalled that Governor Bala Mohammed, who also recently returned from, an official trip in Lagos, met with Mohammed Atiku Abubakar in the Aero Contractor aircraft where they shook hands and exchanged pleasantries.

“So far, the governor has not exhibited any symptom of the disease but based on the recommendation of the NCDC, he will remain indoors to avoid the risk of spreading the disease. Currently, the blood sample of the governor is being taken and is undergoing a clinical test.”

“For the period of the clinical testing, the governor and his entourage will remain in isolation pending the outcome of the clinical result,” the governor’s aide said.
