Presidential Spokesman, Mallam Garba Shehu, has stated that he has tested negative to the Coronavirus pandemic, while stating that the information going round about him and President Muhammadu Buhari is false.
Shehu made this known via his Twitter handle on Saturday noting that he was open about his status in order to ease the fears of those who had had contacts with him in recent times.
He said, “My test proved negative for the virus. Alhamdu Lillah! Notwithstanding, I advise everyone that we continue the isolation and work from home.”
He further stated that “I think it is only fair that I ease the fears of my friends and relations with whom I made recent contacts about the coronavirus. Fake news media had said all sorts of rubbish about me and the President I work for.”
According to him, the originators of the fake news have taken advantage of his silence about his status to peddle all manners of falsehood.
The Presidential Spokesman said, “I join in prayers for Malam Nasiru to overcome the #Covid-19 infection.”
