Nigeria’s former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has revealed that his son tested positive for the deadly Coronavirus.

Atiku, on his verified twitter page, late Sunday night disclosed that his son had tested positive for the virus.

He said the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, had been duly informed.


Atiku added that his son, whose name he did not disclose, had been moved to Gwagwalada Specialist Teaching Hospital in Abuja for treatment and management.

He called on Nigerians to pray for his son’s quick recovery.

“My son has tested positive to the #coronavirus. Nigeria’s Centre for Disease Control has been duly informed, and he has been moved to Gwagwalada Specialist Teaching Hospital in Abuja for treatment and management.

“I will appreciate it if you have him in your prayers. Stay safe, coronavirus is real,” he tweeted.

Atiku had earlier in the day said he joined millions of other Nigerians to celebrate the health workers for their courageous work at this challenging time, and  urged all Nigerians to remain strong while” we fight the scourge of this #COVIDー19 to the end.”

    • How will God. Help a hateful person like YOU. Ask for mercy.

    • Stop being negative about your country. A lot of "advanced" countries are powerless at this moment.

    • @Laz what do you mean "we have no government"? What can you do if you are in government, must you be always on the negative side? Who prevented you from vying for the presidency? While Nigeria is being commended the world over for the measures put in place, you are here crying wolf. RUBBISH.
