In a statement on Tuesday, the governor’s Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mukhtar Gidado, explained that Governor Mohammed took the test after he had contact with the son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, who had been infected with the virus.

He said the governor had returned to Bauchi from an official trip to Lagos after he met with Atiku’s son on the plane where both men shook hands and exchanged pleasantries.

Governor Mohammed has since gone into self-isolation to prevent any possible spread of the virus.

  1. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative
    and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I found this in my search for something regarding this.

  2. After looking over a few of the blog articles on your web
    page, I really appreciate your technique of writing a blog.

    I bookmarked it to my bookmark site list and will be checking back soon. Please check out my website as well and let me know what you think.

  3. A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do believe that
    you ought to publish more on this issue, it might not be a taboo subject but usually
    people don’t speak about these issues. To the next!
    All the best!!

  4. Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search
    Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.
    If you know of any please share. Thank you!

  5. Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with
    experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
