  2. Dave my brother, don’t tense yourself up over this woman and the likes of her. She has to do the bidding of her pay master(s). It is this kind of mentality and ideology possessed and being used by our political office holders that is driving this country into obscurity. They would always have a way of defending the lies they keep polluting this country with even when it has nothing to do with them. On the grounds of the purity of mind and sincerity of purpose they claim to have towards this whole thing, let them show the man his test result and answer his questions rather than abuse the man and evade the fabric of the matter. Before the emergence and spread of this ‘virus’, there’ve been occasions where a whole family get infected with a disease simultaneously. Yes. Moreover, the same news article has it that the Bauchi state governor and Doyin Okupe raised the same question.
