The Kano State Former Commissioner of Works and Infrastructure, Muazu Magaji, has disclosed that he had tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
He explained that he had been feeling unwell, a situation that compelled him to take the test for the deadly respiratory disease which returned positive.
Magaji, through a post on his social media page on Thursday, revealed that he had been moved into one of the state’s isolation centers by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control’s evacuation team.
“Dear all, I do truly apologize to you not getting across to me on phone or messages.
“I have been indisposed due to ongoing health challenges some of us going through in Kano. In Sha Allah, it will be well.
“This morning my NCDC test is out. I have been confirmed COVID-19 positive and have been moved to one of the state facilities… pray for us,” he wrote.
Recall that the former commissioner was sacked on April 18 by the state’s Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, after his alleged foul comment over the death of Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, who died from complications of the virus.
