The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha, has tested negative for coronavirus.
This was revealed by the Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, during a media briefing on Thursday.
The SGF, who heads the Presidential Task Force for the Control of COVID–19, is one the people who had contact with Abba Kyari, President Muhammadu Buhari’s chief of staff, who recently tested positive for the disease.
Ehanire said “I’ve also been empowered by the SGF to reveal his own test result which is that it is negative.”
The minister noted that he publicly announced Mustapha’s result because the SGF directed him to do so.
Ehanire said authorities will continue to adhere to the policy of not naming test subjects in public, regardless of if they test positive or negative.
