Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Muhammed Musa Bello, has tested positive for COVID-19.

Bello, who confirmed the development on his Facebook page on Friday, said he was currently undergoing isolation and treatment at home.

FCT spokesman, Anthony Ogunleye, also confirmed the development in a statement on Friday. He said the minister remained in high spirits while isolating at home.

Bello said he decided to do a COVID-19 test on Thursday morning after feeling unwell since December 28; adding that his test came out positive on Friday morning.

The Minister however said he was currently doing fine, although having a sore throat, feverish feeling and mild running nose.

Bello said experts assured him that his symptoms were mild because he had already received two shots of the COVID-19 AstraZeneca vaccines.

“After a hide and seek period spanning 21 months (one year, nine months) between COVID-19 and my humble self, the virus finally caught up with me during the dying days of 2021. After feeling unwell since 28th December, I decided to do a COVID-19 test yesterday morning. The result came out positive this morning…Undertaking treatment and isolation at home”, he said.

He also commended and wished all the medical personnel in the FCT and beyond who had been in the front line against the virus a happy and prosperous New Year 2022.

Bello prayed for the quick recovery of all the victims of COVID-19 and urged all those who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 to do so.
