He said, “It is with praise and thanksgiving to God Almighty that I announce that after subsequent tests, NCDC has declared that I am COVID-19 negative.

“I return all glory to God Almighty for His mercy. I also appreciate my wife and my entire family for their support during the time I was in isolation.”

He again prayed to God that the wife of the governor, Dr. Mrs. Eunice Ortom and others affected with the pandemic will recover quickly and come out with negative result from the viral disease.

“The COVID-19 team has been wonderful. I join thousands of other well-wishers in prayers for Benue’s First Lady, Dr. Mrs Eunice Ortom, the Head of Service, Mrs Veronica Onyeke and others. We are optimistic that they will all come out negative and remain hale and hearty,” the SSG prayed.
