Abia state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has tested positive for COVID-19.
The governor had gone into isolation before his result returned positive, and directed the deputy governor to act on his behalf pending the time he resumes duty, noted a statement issued by the commissioner of information in the state, John Okiyi Kalu on Monday.
”Recall that on Saturday, 30th May 2020, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu volunteered his sample for COVID-19 test and subsequently directed members of the state Executive Council (EXCO) and those of the inter-ministerial committee on COVID-19 to submit themselves for the same test.
On Tuesday, 2nd June 2020, the result of Governor Ikpeazu’s test returned negative,” he said.
”On Thursday, 4th June, 2020, the Governor submitted another sample at NCDC laboratory for confirmation and the result returned positive.
Ikpeazu urged all Abians to take the fight against COVID-19 serious as the disease is real but not a death sentence
