CONFUSION! 'We Would Not Be A Party To Any ”Fictitious COVID-19 Claims' - Kogi Govt Rejects NCDC’s Results


The Kogi state government has rejected claims by the Nigeria Center for Disease Center (NCDC), that two cases of COVID-19 were recorded in the state as reported on Wednesday.

However, in a statement released this morning, the Kogi State Commissioner of Health, Saka Haruna Audu, said the state government has developed “full testing capacity” and “conducted hundreds of tests” which have come back negative. The government says they would not be a party to any ”fictitious COVID-19 claims”

“Kogi State till this very moment is Covid-19 free. We have developed full testing capacity and have conducted hundreds of tests so far which have come back negative.

We have also continued to insist that we will not be a party to any fictitious COVID-19 claims which is why we do not recognise any COVID-19 test conducted by any Kogite outside the boundaries of the State except those initiated by us.

Any attempt to force us to announce a case of COVID-19 will be vehemently rejected.” he said.
