Meanwhile, elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to order the arrest of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi over his claims that Coronavirus is not real.

Clark, who just recovered from COVID-19, made this known to reporters on Wednesday in Kiagbodo, Delta State.

He said: “The governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, should be ashamed of himself. He should be sanctioned.

“This is a man parading self that he wants to be President of Nigeria. It’s all nonsense. Some of them feel because they are very close to Mr. President, they can do anything.”

Recounting his ordeal with COVID-19, Clark said he recovered from COVID-19 two weeks after testing positive for the virus.
