Popular presidential candidate tests positive for COVID, suspends campaign

The presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Dumebi Kachikwu has suspended his campaign after testing positive for COVID.

The presidential candidate confirmed the development in a statement released to newsmen in Abuja on Friday.

Kachikwu said he had tested positive for COVID and would need to be in isolation till he recovers his health.

He also advised the citizens of the country not to take corona virus with levity as the number of reported cases of the virus has increased in the last few weeks.

”Nigerians must not let their guard down even though the Government has relaxed COVID rules. Our public health system can’t cope with the fallout of huge infection rates with attendant symptoms especially at a time when our health care professionals are leaving the country in droves.

“We must increase testing and take all necessary precautions not to spread the virus. We must not allow political rallies to become COVID spreaders and reverse the gains made in combating the virus. We will survive the Corona Virus if we all remain vigilant.”
