Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has given a reason why the state will defeat COVID-19 if any case of the virus ever gets confirmed.
Yahaya Bello who appeared in a video showing him working out stated that Kogi State has got a capable governor who will combat and defeat the virus.
“If COVID-19 comes to Kogi State, you have a governor that will combat and defeat the idiot’, the governor said.
He stated this after a video surfaced weeks ago showing him wishing HIV for those who questioned his COVID-19 status.
The State Commissioner of Information, Kingsley Fanwo stated that there are attempts to ensure that cases of COVID-19 are confirmed in the state.
“In view of the fact that Kogi State is one of only two states still COVID-19 free in Nigeria and having regard to recent pressures from some interesting quarters for Kogi State to find and declare cases of the disease, we are wary of an unholy conspiracy to declare COVID-19 in all states of the federation.”
