Yahaya Bello-led government’s denial trailed the NCDC report announcing the first two cases in the state on Wednesday. Source: Twitter “Kogi State till this very moment is Covid-19 free. We have developed full testing capacity and have conducted hundreds of tests so far which have come back negative.”
“We have also continued to insist that we will not be a party to any fictitious COVID-19 claims which is why we do not recognise any COVID-19 test conducted by any Kogite outside the boundaries of the State except those initiated by us,” Audu said. The commissioner, however, assured the people of the state of maximum security from the scourge and enjoined them to take all the precautionary measure with utmost seriousness.
