Mohammed who was the first Nigerian governor to test positive to the deadly coronavirus had described his 3 weeks of staying at the isolation center as hell.
Although his second test came negative, he appreciates the prayers and love of the citizens during his “his lonely time” in the isolation center.
Speaking with the journalists at the state house, the governor said;
“This disease that I was infected with is a terrible experience. I went through hell while in isolation for treatment. I felt like I was alone but the love, affection and prayers shown to me by the people of Bauchi State really kept me going.”
“I thank Allah that I have now been freed from the virus. I am sorry for the inconvenience it might have caused to anybody in Bauchi and Nigeria. It has never been my wishes to be infected,” he added.
As of Sunday afternoon, there were only six confirmed cases in Bauchi, which still remains one of the states with lowest numbers in Nigeria.
Meanwhile, the federal government has last week released the names of Nigerians in diaspora who died of the pandemic.
