The Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Muhammad Babandede, has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Service Public Relations Officer, Sunday James, revealed Babandede’s health status in a statement sent to Channels Television on Sunday.
He noted that the comptroller-general returned recently from the United Kingdom, although the purpose of the visit was not disclosed.
As a top official of the government, James said Babandede adhered to the instructions of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to self-isolate and undergo a test.
“The result of the test came out positive, hence the need to make it public. He conveys his goodwill to all, and he is in stable condition responding to treatment,” the statement said.
According to the Service spokesman, the comptroller-general is active and directing as expected, the affairs of the service online.
He said the Deputy Comptroller-General overseeing the administration of the service has been in touch with Babandede online to keep the activities of the service running within the period.
“The Nigeria Immigration Service community will continue to deliver on its mandate for the nation, even in these trying times as we pray the whole world gets over it, Nigeria inclusive,” the statement added.
