The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has gone into isolation for the second time after coming in contact with COVID-19 infected victims.
Engr. Benson Abounu the Deputy Governor of Benue state, disclosed this on Sunday at the Armed Forces Interdenominational service held at the ECWA Church, Makurdi. He said his principal decided to go into isolation following the medical report indicating that a certain Permanent Secretary (whose name he refused to reveal) and his family members tested positive for COVID-19.
“As I speak with you, the Governor has been in isolation for about nine days and has shown no symptoms or signs of the virus. So, am happy to inform you that by tomorrow, we should be able to certify him free and he will resume work.”
Recall that Gov Ortom had in July 2020 gone into isolation when his wife, Mrs. Eunice Ortom, son, and some of the wife’s personal aides tested positive for COVID-19.
