The Abia state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.

The state Commissioner for Information, John Okiyi Kalu, made this known in a statement on Monday.

The commissioner said that before the result was presented to the governor, he had already isolated himself.

“Consequent on the above, the Governor has directed his Deputy, Rt Hon Ude Oko Chukwu, to act on his behalf pending his full resumption of duties.

“We wish to urge all Abians to take the fight against COVID-19 serious as the disease is real but not a death sentence. Our state has the resources to manage patients back to good health.”

This development was coming after the state governor boasted that the case of coronavirus pandemic would not be recorded in Abia State, because it was the only state mentioned in the Bible.

The governor made the statement in a video trending of Facebook, while he was  chatting with his Chief Press Secretary, Onyebuchi Ememanka.
