COVID-19: Bauchi Governor, Mohammed Recounts Isolation Experience

Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi state has recounted his experience in isolation after testing positive for Coronavirus (CODI-19).

This is coming two days after the governor ignored the social distance directive of the World Helath Organisation (WHO) and attended a Jumat service at the state central mosque on Friday.

Speaking to reporters on Saturday at the Government House, Bauchi, the state capital, governor Mohammed said the three weeks he spent in isolation was very tough and has changed his life forever.

Mohammed appreciated residents of the state for their love and affection to him during his isolation, adding that he will continue to work hard to give them the dividends of democracy.

The governor also asked his supporters and other well-wishers not to bother coming to visit him at the government house,

He said: “This disease that I was infected with is a terrible experience. I went through hell while in isolation for treatment, I felt like I was alone but the love, affection and prayers shown to me by the people of Bauchi State really kept me going,” he said.

“I thank Allah that I have now been freed from the virus. I am sorry for the inconvenience it might have caused to anybody in Bauchi and Nigeria, it has never been my wish to be infected.

“I have received best wishes and prayers from many people across the divide, some of whom I do not even know.

“This show of love has strengthened my spirit to work hard and deliver dividends of democracy to the people of Bauchi State, and I can assure the people of Bauchi State that I will do exactly that.”
