Bauchi State Governor - Bala Muhammed
Ladan Salihu, an aide to Muhammed Bala and former Director-General of Radio Nigeria tweeted:
Our Governor, Bala Mohammed is in self-isolation following contact with Atiku Abubakar’s son. Yes, we were on the same flight from Lagos to Abuja. They shook hands and exchanged pleasantries. The governor and the rest of us have taken tests. The results will be negative Insha Allah.
Before Governor Bala went into isolation; he, alongside other Governors attended the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting last Thursday which was presided by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
As it stands now, all the State Governors in Nigeria (including Professor Yemi Osibanjo) are carefully monitoring their current state of health after the NEC meeting.
