Other state Governors also made public their COVID-19 state after being tested.
Wike however stated that such step shows that the pandemic has been ‘politicised’ in the country.
“Everything is politicised in Nigeria. Governors, commissioners will go for a test and will tell the world they are positive /negative to attract publicity but nobody has gone for an HIV test to declare their status“, he said.
“Everything we publicise to attract Nigerians. Testing negative has become news now. For us in Rivers state, this thing is immaterial.
The Governor also noted that Rivers State has been the subject of criticisms as against other states worthy of such.
