The sacked Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure in Kano State, who mocked the death of Mallam Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, has tested positive for COVID-19.
Kano Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje had on April 18 sacked Muazu Magaji as a result of his unguarded utterances over the demise of Kyari.
In a Facebook post Thursday, Magaji said: “Dear all, I do truly apologise to you not getting across to me on phone or messages. I have been indisposed due to ongoing health challenges some of us are going through in Kano. In Sha Allah, it will be well.
“This morning (yesterday), my NCDC test is out. I have been confirmed COVID-19 positive and have been moved to one of the state facilities… pray for us.”
