Nasir El-Rufai, Kaduna State Governor has disclosed how he contracted the novel coronavirus from a fellow governor in 2020.
He stated that his wives run away from him when they found out that he had contracted the deadly coronavirus.
While speaking at at the Seventh Ahmadu Bello Foundation lecture in Kaduna last Saturday he made this revelation.
He mentioned that had it not been the intervention of a lockdown, not less than 50,000people would have been killed by the virus.
“A governor infected me with COVID-19 virus and I brought it to Kaduna. I was locked up for 26 days. My wives ran away from me. Fifty thousand people in Kaduna would have died of COVID-19 last year, but for the fact that Kaduna State was the first to lockdown.
“I am happy to say because of COVID-19, we have been able to put in place infectious disease wards in our hospitals. People travel around the world so there may be ‘COVID-25’ or 30. With what is happening in India, the situation is scary. But God has been very kind to us,” he stated.
