Nigerian University VC Test Positive To Covid -19

The Vice Chancellor of Benue State University, Professor Msugh Kembe, has revealed that he has contracted COVID-19.

Professor Kembe, through his verified Facebook account, said that the results of his test came out on Monday and returned positive. Recall that the university authorities had decontaminated the school which fueled speculations that the Vice-Chancellor and top management staff of the University had tested positive to the virus.

However, a statement signed by the institution’s Principal Assistant Registrar (Information & Public Relations), Mr Tser Vanger, had described the information as an unfounded rumour.

But in his verified Facebook account, the Vice-Chancellor urged all staff of the University and his close associates to check themselves, isolate and be pragmatic.

Prof. Kembe in his statement said: “On Monday, June 29, 2020, my test result for the COVID-19 returned positive.

“I had fever and body fatigue the previous week, I have been in isolation since I found out about my positive exposure to the virus. I am of course managing the virus now. I must at this point express my appreciation to the… Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom and also the state Task Force on COVID-19 headed by the deputy governor, Benson Abounu, for their timely support to ensure I get the required medical attention.

“Staff of Benue State University and close associates are urged to check themselves, isolate and be pragmatic. The virus doesn’t move, we move it. Take responsibility,” the statement read.
