Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has recovered from coronavirus, The PUNCH reports.
The governor, who made this known on Wednesday via Twitter, said his family went through trauma when he tested positive for the virus.
But nearly after four weeks of being in isolation receiving treatment, he said he now tests negative for the virus as shown by two consecutive negative test results.
He wrote, “I thank Almighty Allah for His grace and mercy. I also acknowledge with gratitude the massive outpouring of sympathy, prayers and public support that followed the disclosure of the infection.
“My family not only went through the trauma of potentially losing a member but also the risk of being infected as well. The entire family has been supportive as usual, while my many friends and colleagues from all over the world have sent their prayers and best wishes.
“I wish to thank the diligent medical personnel of our Ministry of Health and the Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital who managed my case for their dedicated and professional care.”
According to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control as of Tuesday night, nine of the 782 total cases of the virus reported in Nigeria were recorded in Kaduna State.
