A few days after the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeam, had contacted COVID-19, another minister in the President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet has contacted the virus.
The Minister of Police Affairs, Muhammad Dingyadi, is the minister in question and has since gone into self-isolation, following his meeting with Mr Onyeama last Thursday.
Corroborating, the spokesman of the police affairs ministry, Seyi Odutayo, confirmed the development to our correspondent on Tuesday.
Accordingb to Mr Odutayo, Mr Dingyadi and a former Sokoto State governor, Aliyu Wammako, had met with Mr Onyeama last Thursday.
He said, “I can confirm that the minister met with his foreign affairs counterpart last Thursday and following the announcement that Mr Geoffrey Onyeama tested positive for the virus, the minister of police affairs has also decided to go into isolation in compliance with the NCDC guidelines.”
