The Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule, has denied reports making the rounds on social media that he is in self-isolation after contracting the dreaded coronavirus also known as COVID-19.
Governor Sule debunked the claim in a statement issued on Wednesday in the state capital, Lafia, through his Director of Strategic Communication and Press Affairs, Mr. Yakubu Lamai.
In the statement, Lamai said that there was nothing to hide about the COVID-19 global pandemic, Nasarawa State inclusive, adding also that if the governor was in self-isolation a formal statement would have been made to that effect.
”It has come to the notice of the Directorate of Strategic Communication and Press Affairs that some Social Media platforms are saying His Excellency, Engineer Abdullahi A Sule has gone on self-isolation.
“If indeed His Excellency, Engineer Abdullahi Sule goes into self-isolation, we shall make a formal statement to that.
”Please rest assured that there is nothing to hide about COVID-19 in the entire world as also in Nasarawa State,” the statement added in part.
