Despite the daily increase in COVID-19 cases in Nigeria and around the world, Kogi state Governor Yahaya Bello claims that COVID-19 is an artificial creation.
He made this statement on Tuesday, June 30, at a prayer session for the repose of the soul of the late chief justice of Kogi, judge Nasir Ajanah, who reportedly died in the COVID-19 detention center, Globalgistng reports.
The Governor dismissed reports that the judge died from COVID-19, insisting that Ajana died of natural causes. He said that COVID-19 is being promoted to cause fear and panic among the Nigerian people.
“Don’t give in to the fear and evil of COVID-19 questions…. this is a disease that was imported, spread and imposed on people for no reason,” he said.
Bello advised people not to give in to the fear of COVID-19, claiming that the disease was imported and imposed on people for no reason.
Meanwhile, Ondo state Governor Rotimi Akeredolu announced that he had tested positive for a Coronavirus infection. The Governor made the announcement on Tuesday, June 30, via a video posted on his official and verified Twitter account.
Akeredolu said that he had symptoms, and since then, he has gone into self-imposed isolation. He called for the prayers of the state’s residents, saying: “your constant prayers for my well-being are greatly appreciated. A few days ago I had malaria, I was treated and still recovered.
Since we had a meeting of our NEC party (APC) at the time, my colleagues approached me. I spoke to one of them, fearing that malaria cannot be treated easily, and I should go ahead to test COVID-19, ” Akeredolu said.
“The result was released today, June 30, 2020. And I gave a positive result. But I am healthy and symptomatic. I don’t feel weird in any way.
My doctors said I should go through the usual treatment and self-isolation. The Governor assured the residents of Ondo state that government work is well underway as he will take control of state Affairs from his isolation.
