Gov. Abubakar Bello of Niger has tested positive for COVID-19, an aide disclosed in a statement.

Noel-Berje said the governor made this known via his Twitter handle and that he had immediately gone into self-isolation and commenced treatment.

She solicited for prayers from all and sundry for his quick recovery even as he is asymptomatic to the virus.

She advised the people to always observe all the COVID-19 protocols in their dealings.

Other Nigerian governors that had tested positive for COVID-19 include Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State, Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta and Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia.
