Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, has cast aspersions on Cross River State’s COVID-19-free status.
In a press briefing yesterday (Wednesday) Mr. Mohammed revealed that 15 COVID-19 cases in Bauchi were people travelling from Calabar, Cross River’s capital city.
According to the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC), Cross River State is the only State in the country without any confirmed case of the novel coronavirus.
“I don’t want to join issues with anybody, but I want to tell Nigerians that they are going to be accountable to God.
“There is no need pretending that this thing is not there. We as leaders, we must come out and face the challenges. We in Bauchi, we are not pretending.” Mohammed said.
