My 4 children, 5 other family members tested positive, says SGF


The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Boss Mustapha has told of how nine members of his family including all his children tested positive for coronavirus.

Mustapha, who is the chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, made this disclosure at the routine media briefing of the committee in Abuja on Monday.

The SGF said his family members, who contracted the novel disease included a one-year-old and his four children, adding that only him and his wife tested negative.

“My wife and I consistently tested negative but members of the household were infected. The last one, it was a nightmare. I was not infected but the truth about it, the agony of having members of your household… I am a father of four. All my four kids were infected.

“A lot of you here are parents, so you need to do everything you can to ensure that you keep yourself and members of your family safe,” he said.
