Mohammed Atiku-Abubakar, a son of Nigeria’s former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar, has now tested negative for coronavirus.

This is coming on the same day that Raymond Dokpesi Jnr, the chairman of DAAR Communications Plc, owner of AIT and Raypower, disclosed that he has tested positive for coronavirus.

Mohammed said he will soon be discharged from Gwagwalada Specialist Teaching Hospital in Abuja, where he has been receiving treatment for 40 days. He was moved to the hospital on March 19 after testing positive for the virus.

“I have just received my second consecutive negative result. My discharge is currently being processed, and I hope to be home this evening,” he said from the isolation centre.

It would be recalled that Atiku Abubakar, had revealed on March 22 that his son tested positive for the virus.
