JUST IN!! Tinubu, wife test negative for COVID-19 (Read Details)

The National leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his wife have tested negative for COVID-19

A statement from the former Lagos state governor’s spokesman, Tunde Rahman disclosed this on Monday.

He confirmed that Tinubu’s late Chief Security Officer, Lateef Raheem, had died of complications from COVID-19 and another aide had tested positive.

The statement read: “Covid-19 is a real and present threat. Those of us who discount it or claim it is a fabrication do a grave and dangerous disservice to the public well-being.

Likewise, those who stigmatise people who may have been stricken by the virus also do a disservice by casting blame on the innocent and discouraging people from taking the COVID test. “We cannot defeat this health menace through ignorance or by shaming one another. We can only beat it through transparency, knowledge and compassion.

This, we have learned first-hand. “Following the death of our well-respected and beloved Chief Security Officer, Alhaji Lateef Raheem, NCDC medics took the wise precaution of taking samples from his body for testingto actually determine the cause of death. Today, the test results are back.

The samples tested positive for Covid-19. “As a precautionary measure taken soon after the death of Alhaji Raheem, His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, and all their aides took COVID-19 tests Saturday, April 25. The results of the tests were returned this morning. “Test results for both Asiwaju and Senator Tinubu were negative.

The results of one aide were positive. The rest of the staff was negative. The one staff member has been isolated in accordance with NCDC guidelines. “Further contact tracing and COVID-19 tests are being conducted by the NCDC with regard to the relatives and possible contacts of that staff member. “Asiwaju has stressed that openness and transparency must be observed if we are to defeat this disease.
There is no house immune to its entry. Contracting the virus should not bring social or moral stigma any more than contracting malaria or a common cold.
