The Minister of State of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Dr Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu has been tested for Coronavirus and the result came out negative, this was reported on Twitter in the early hours of today.
Recall that the FCT Minister has been on self-isolation since Tuesday over direct contact she had with people who have been tested positive to the deadly virus. She also announced that she needed to give her samples out in order to test for Coronavirus and thank God for the result of the test conducted on her revealed negative.

While in self-isolation, Aliyu had said: “I am busy working and liasing with the six Area Council chairmen in the territory on prevention and sensitisation of people in the area council and satellite towns.”
Mrs Aliyu joins a cadre of high government functionaries who have been or are being tested for the infection, the most high profile being the President and Vice President, Messrs Muhammadu Buhari and Yemi Osinbajo, both of whom have tested negative.
From what we had learnt, the chief of staff to the president, Mr Abba Kyari already had close contact with the FCT minister before and don’t forget that the man is already tested positive to Coronavirus.
This gave the FCT minister concern that she needed to also test herself so that she would know her current status but the result of the test conducted on her revealed negative as announced on her Twitter page.
Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed has been tested positive for the virus even though he is the first governor to have been tested positive to the virus.
