One Week After: Benue Governor Ortom Recovers From COVID-19

The Benue state Governor, Samuel Ortom, today announced that the result of his samples tested for COVID-19 has returned negative after one week of testing positive to the virus after a close aide returned positive.

The Governor made this known while addressing journalists in Makurdi, the Benue State capital. He applauded the people of the state, his friends and supporters across the country for their prayers during the period of self-isolation.

The governor, who resumed duties immediately, thanked his deputy, Benson Abounu who stood in his place while he was in isolation. Ortom urged the people of the state to adhere strictly to the COVID-19 protocols.

The Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, who made the announcement, noted that the governor did not show any symptoms of the disease.
