Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has gone into isolation.
El-Rufai, who announced this on Saturday in a broadcast, said this became imperative as family members and senior government officials around him had tested positive for COVID-19.
He said he decided to go into self-isolation as a precaution pending a COVID-19 test to be conducted on Sunday.
In March, the Kaduna governor tested positive for the virus but recovered after some weeks.
Other governors who had tested positive for the infection and had recovered include Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi; Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu; Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed; Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, amongst others.
Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has also gone into isolation following reported cases of positive COVID-19 cases recorded by persons close to him.
