Mr. Dumebi Kachikwu, the African Democratic Congress (ADC) presidential candidate, has tested positive for Covid-19 and has urged Nigerians to be cautious as the virus reemerges.
In a statement, Kachikwu made the admission and added that he was withdrawing and had postponed all public activities until he received a negative report.
He urged Nigerians to take the coronavirus seriously because infection rates have been rising quickly over the globe in recent weeks.
Kachikwu said, “Nigerians must not let their guard down even though the Government has relaxed COVID rules.
“Our public health system can’t cope with the fallout of huge infection rates with attendant symptoms, especially at a time when our health care professionals are leaving the country in droves.
“We must increase testing and take all necessary precautions not to spread the virus.
“We must not allow political rallies to become COVID spreaders and reverse the gains made in combating the virus.
“We will survive the Corona Virus if we all remain vigilant.”
