“I have tested positive for COVID-19. After a hide and seek period spanning 21 months (1yr 9 months) between COVID-19 and my humble self, the virus finally caught up with me during the dying days of 2021. After feeling unwell from 28th December, I decided to do a COVID-19 test yesterday morning.”
Bello said he had already taken two shots of coronavirus vaccine and appealed to all those who had yet to be vaccinated to take the jab.
The development came a week after some presidential aides contracted the virus.
