Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai has recovered from the deadly coronavirus disease after three weeks of isolation.
El-Rufai, who had a bearded new look with all smiles on his face, shared his good news of recovery from the disease via his verified Twitter handle on Wednesday, noting that he had tested negative twice for the disease.
The governor further expressed appreciation to the medical personnel of the state’s Ministry of Health and the Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital who managed his case, for their dedicated and professional care.
The governor tweeted: “KADUNA UPDATE: I am delighted to report today, that after nearly four weeks of observing a strict medical regime, I have now received the all-clear after two consecutive negative test results -Malam Nasir @elrufai.”
He added: “I thank Almighty Allah for His grace and mercy. I also acknowledge with gratitude the massive outpouring of sympathy, prayers and public support that followed the disclosure of the infection.
“My family not only went through the trauma of potentially losing a member, but also the risk of being infected as well. The entire family has been supportive as usual, while my many friends and colleagues from all over the world have sent their prayers and best wishes.
“I wish to thank the diligent medical personnel of our Ministry of Health and the Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital who managed my case for their dedicated and professional care.
“It was cheering to see the determined efforts of our Covid-19 Task Force chaired by the Deputy Governor, the officials of our Ministry of Health ably led by the Commissioner and our security/enforcement agencies, to manage and contain the spread of Covid-19 in the state.
“The commitment, competence and capabilities displayed by the Kaduna State Government in my four-week absence is clear evidence that we have a public service we can all be proud of.
It should be recalled that El-Rufai had been in isolation since he tested positive for COVID-19 on March 28 while his Deputy, Balarabe Hadiza took charge of the affairs of the state.
