The statement reads: “This is a precautionary measure: I feel well, but last week, I tested positive for coronavirus, the pandemic that is sweeping the world. I have followed all the protocols the government has announced to self-isolate and quarantine.

He further explained that he was being transferred to Lagos for “additional tests and observation.

“I have made my own care arrangements to avoid further burdening the public health system; which faces so many pressures. Like many others that will test also positive, I have not experienced high fever or other symptoms associated with this new virus and have been working from home.

“I hope to be back at my desk very soon. I have a team of young, professional, knowledgeable and patriotic colleagues; whose dedication has been beyond the call of duty, who continue to work seven days a week, with no time of the day spared.

“We will continue to serve the President and people of Nigeria, as we have for the past five years.”

He warned that COVID-19 is no respecter of status as it knows no difference between people.

“Listen to good advice from the proper authorities: pay no heed to quack cures or fake news from social media. President Buhari will do whatever it takes to protect the health and safety of our people and get the country back on its feet as soon as possible.”
