Governor El-Rufai Opens Up On Fake Covid-19 Case Across Nigeria
Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state has reacted to claims that some state governors are reducing the number of COVID-19 samples sent to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC). The governor said such claim might be “partly right”.
The governor was responding to a tweet by one Jibrin Ibrahim who picked holes in the COVID-19 numbers released by NCDC every evening.
Ibrahim insinuated that state governors might be reducing the number of samples sent to NCDC so they can record low numbers and hasten return to normal activities.
Malam Nasir @elrufai is meeting members of the Kaduna State Traditional Rulers’ Council as part of KDSG consultations with stakeholders on the conditions for safe re-opening of the state.
