The Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, has recovered and tested negative for COVID-19, he announced in a statement he personally signed on Friday.

He disclosed that his daughter and three of his close aides also tested negative for the virus.

The governor thanked God for his recovery and the people of the state for their prayers and support.

This comes four weeks after they were infected by COVID-19.

On July 4, Governor Umahi announced that he, his daughter and aides tested positive after carrying out the test.

Although he said they were not showing any symptoms, he, however, said they went into isolation in line with protocols laid down by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

He, therefore, directed the Deputy Governor, Kelechi Igwe, to take over the frontline coordination of the state’s fight against the pandemic to protect Ebonyi people.
