The Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed has shared his experiences while in isolation for the coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.
The Governor while addressing journalists at government house Bauchi, lamented that he went through ‘hell’ during the three weeks he spent in isolation.
While thanking those who reached out to him during the period and his loved one for standing by him, Mohammed noted that his stay in isolation has changed his life forever.
“This disease that I was infected with is a terrible experience. I went through hell while in isolation for treatment, I felt like I was alone but the love, affection and prayers shown to me by the people of Bauchi State really kept me going,” he said.
“I thank Allah that I have now been freed from the virus. I am sorry for the inconveniences it might have caused to anybody in Bauchi and Nigeria, it has never been my wishes to be infected.
“I have received best wishes and prayers from many people across the divide, some of whom I do not even know.
“This show of love has strengthened my spirit to work hard and deliver dividends of democracy to the people of Bauchi State, and I can assure the people of Bauchi State that I will do exactly that.”
Naija News recalls the governor was discharged on Thursday but was in the news again on Friday for ignoring social distancing at at a crowded Jumat service.
