Dethroned Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido, has made public the result of the coronavirus tests he took alongside that of his immediate family.
Tongues started wagging about the likelihood of Sanusi having the pandemic after Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, who is a close friend of his tested positive for it.
He also played host to several VIPs who may have had coronavirus exposure immediately after he was deposed.
The former Central Bank governor has now laid to rest any speculation in a statement released by his son, Adam.
It reads in part: “We have been inundated with calls asking about the health and safety of my father (Sanusi) especially given the number of visitors he received on arrival in Lagos, and a number of contacts he had who have either tested positive for COVID-19 or were in contact with persons who tested positive.
“As for my father, on March 25, he and all our mothers submitted samples for the COVID-19 test. These samples were taken at home under the supervision of Dr. Alero Roberts, the second Vice Chairman of the Association of Public Health Professionals. “On March 27, Dr. Roberts conveyed the results and all of them were negative. We hope this information will allay the concerns of all those who are asking.”
