Lai Mohammed, has disputed media claims that he has got the COVID-19 virus and is being treated in isolation

Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, has disputed media claims that he has got the COVID-19 virus and is being treated in isolation.

Following Garba Shehu’s confirmation that he had tested positive for the virus, there were rumors that Mr. Mohammed had got the disease.

In a statement issued by his Special Assistant to the President (Media) Office of the Minister of Information and Culture, Segun Adeyemi, the minister stated that he does not have COVID-19 and is not in isolation or getting treatment.

“The attention of Information and Culture Minister,  Alhaji Mohammed, has been drawn to a report making the rounds that he has contracted the COVID-19 virus and that he is now in isolation, where he is receiving treatment.

“For the record, the Minister does not have COVID-19, hence he is neither in isolation nor receiving treatment anywhere.

As a member of the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19, the Minister has the added responsibility of leading by example, hence would not have hesitated to publicly announce his COVID-19 status if indeed he has contracted the virus. After all, he is not only fully vaccinated, he has also taken the booster shot, a situation that offers him different layers of protection even if he contracts the virus. For those who contract the virus, they deserve our empathy and prayers, not stigmatization.”
