Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, has recovered from COVID-19.
Mr Shehu confirmed in a social media post on Wednesday that he had recovered from the deadly virus.
“I thank Almighty Allah for my speedy recovery from COVID-19.
“My prayers and deepest respect are for all of you, who called or texted expressing your concerns for me.
“May all of our countrymen and women still afflicted with the virus fight this scourge with all their might and get well soon,” he wrote.
Shehu and a few other top officials in the Presidency were reported to have tested positive for the virus last week. However, only Shehu confirmed his.
Minister of information and culture Lai Mohammed denied contracting the virus, demanding apology and retraction from Premium Times which first reported it.
Meanwhile, the president is fine and going about his normal duties, according to his special adviser on media and publicity Femi Adesina earlier this week.
