He added that he attended the inauguration of the new Minister of State for Works and Housing, Muazu Sambo, on Friday.

The Permanent Secretary, State House, Tijani Umar; the President’s Aide-de-camp, Yusuf Dodo; his chief security officer, Aliyu Musa, and his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu were reportedly infected with the disease.

Reacting to the claim that he is ill, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said he is hale and hearty, adding that he had taken the two doses of COVID-19 vaccine.

“On Friday, I witnessed the swearing-in for minister of state for power after which we had a security meeting. How can someone who has had such high level engagements for three days consecutively be ill?

“It is nothing but fake news. I am hale and hearty. Not only that, I have taken the two doses of the vaccine. I have also taken the Pfizer booster. I am a member of PSC and I am hale and hearty and I am performing at optimum level.”

Meanwhile, the Presidential aide on media Garba Shehu has confirmed that that indeed he had tested positive for COVID-19 and he was in self-isolation.
