Governor of Ebonyi state, Dave Umahi, his daughter and three of his close aides have recovered and tested negative to Coronavirus.
In a statement he personally signed on Friday, Umahi thanked God for his recovery and the people of the state for their prayers and support.
The recovery comes four weeks after the officials were infected by COVID-19.
Governor Umahi had on July 4 announced that he, his daughter and some aides tested positive for the virus.
Although he said they were not showing any symptoms, he 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 coordination of the state’s fight against the pandemic.
Ebonyi has recorded 785 cases of COVID-19 since the outbreak began in the country.
