Testing Positive for Coronavirus has Humbled Me- Mohammed Atiku

Former vice president Atiku Abubakar’s son, Mohammed Atiku-Abubakar, has said testing positive to coronavirus has humbled him, saying it is an experience he will never forget in his lifetime.

Mohammed,  who has now tested negative for the virus and has been discharged after 40 days of receiving the COVID-19 treatment, thanked God for granting him recovery from the infection.

According to him, he never imagined testing positive for the disease, which has killed thousands around the world.

He said, “In the course of life, we have no idea of what will happen to us because only the Almighty God knows our future.

“When the coronavirus first broke out in far-away China, I had no idea that I might be one of those to be infected. This is one of the everlasting lessons I can’t forget for the rest of my life. Indeed, I have been humbled by this experience. Words cannot sufficiently convey the depth of my joy over my recovery and discharge.

“Since I tested positive after my return from abroad and my isolation for treatment, I was inundated with incredible expressions of goodwill by Nigerians. This pandemic has united the rich and the poor and, indeed, the rest of the world against this novel lethal virus that has caused economic and social disruptions globally.”

He called on Nigerians to support the country’s health workers, urging that hope should not be lost in the country’s health sector.

He added, “No matter our problems, however, we shouldn’t lose hope in our own country. Despite the limitations of our health system, the Federal Ministry of Health and Nigeria Centre for Disease Control have done tremendously well, despite these daunting challenges.

“Our doctors, nurses, and other front line health workers also deserve accolades for their sacrifices and professionalism during this challenging period of our country,” Mohammed stated.
