Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, says those who wish him to test positive for the novel coronavirus will have HIV.
He said this in a video recorded in a gym and seen on Wednesday.
“I got no COVID. Those who wish me to have COVID will have HIV. I’m good, hale and hearty,” the governor said.
He also challenged his detractors to the boxing ring.
Mr Bello regularly practices boxing moves.
It was rumoured on Wednesday that the governor tested positive for the virus which has infected several top government functionaries.
