Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has gone into isolation following reports that an immediate family member and senior officials of the State Government tested positive for COVID-19.

Mr El-Rufai is one of prominent Nigerians who tested positive for the virus in the earliest stages of the pandemic, which broke out in Nigeria in February.

On Friday evening, Mr El-Rufai said he has been notified of more positive COVID-19 test results of persons close to him, including an immediate family member and senior officials of the Kaduna State Government.

In the video broadcast shared via his verified social media pages, the governor said he is currently in self-isolation and hope to be tested by Sunday.

“This is purely a precautionary move that complies with the standard COVID-19 protocols. There will be another update when the test results are ready.”

“I appeal to every resident of Kaduna State to observe and abide by the preventive protocols against COVID-19, especially wearing facemasks, avoiding large gatherings, practising physical distancing and washing their hands regularly,” Mr El-Rufai said.
