The Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, has tested positive for coronavirus after going into self isolation about a day ago.
The Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Mukhtar Gidado, disclosed this in a media statement made available on Tuesday.
Recall the Governor had disclosed that he’d had contact with son of former Vice President Atiku, Mohammed, after he tested positive on Sunday.
The two had exchanged handshakes and cordialities as they’d shared a flight.
The Governor becomes the second prominent Nigerian to test positive for the disease.
