The Presidential candidate of the Peoples’’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has his son tested positive for the dreaded Coronavirus disease.
The PDP chieftain announced it himself on his Tweeter handle late on Sunday night.
He wrote: “My son has tested positive to Coronavirus. NCDC has been duly informed, and he has been moved to the Gwagwalada Specialist Hospital in Abuja for treatment. I will appreciate it if you will have him in your prayers. Stay safe, Coro
navirus is real”.
It could not be ascertained whether the fellow is one of the returnees, from which country and what is his name?
It could be determined however that he must have gone beyond the stage of self-quarantine before the result was ready and he tested positive.
Those who reacted to his tweeter message commended Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for coming out boldly to tell the nation about his predicament.
A daughter of the first family is still at the stage of self-quarantine at the Aso Villa and the nation has not been told of the state of her test. It was learnt that experts will spend eight hours to verify a test case.
Mrs. Aisha Buhari who announced that of the daughter of the first family said she was a returnee from Britain.
