Against several calls from some Nigerians including the opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP, that the Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello should go for test to ascertain his status on the current deadly coronavirus pandemic that have claimed several lives in the world, the governor has come out to state that those wishing that he had contacted the disease would be infected with HIV/Aids.
His words “I gat no COVID. Those who wish me to have COVID will have HIV. I am good, hale and hearty. I challenge everybody to the boxing ring“.
It would be recalled that the Kogi State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had advised Alhaji Yahaya Bello to immediately subject himself to Covid-19 test having had contact with Abba kyari, the Chief of staff to President Mohammadu Buhari.
The PDP in a statement signed by the Director Research and Documentation, Achadu Dickson said the fight against the dreaded coronavirus can only be achieved when stakeholders show responsibility beyond lips service.
He urged those who had contact with the Chief of Staff to go for test. The statement appealed to the APC led government not to play politics with the health and safety of Kogites.
