Former Kano State commissioner of works and infrastructure, Muazu Magaji, who was sacked by governor Abdullahi Ganduje in April for allegedly mocking Abba Kyari, the late chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari when he died of COVID-19, has tested positive for the disease.
In a post on his Facebook page on Thursday, the former commissioner said he has been moved to an isolation centre in the state after his test came out positive.
He wrote, “Salam brothers and sisters I have been down for some days now, NCDC protocol activated. Need your prayers.
“Dear all, I do truly apologize for you not getting across to me on phone or msgs….I have been indisposed due to ongoing health challenges some of us going through in Kano.
“This morning 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!
“Going through a historical moment of our time. A time we will either live to remember or we will be remembered having lived in! Which ever applies Alhamdulillah!”
