Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media has denied contacting Coronavirus disease.

Mr Shehu made this known while denying social media reports that he met with Abba Kyari, the president’s Chief of Staff, after the latter tested positive to the pandemic disease.

An online news medium had reported that the presidential spokesman recently met with Mr Kyari alongside the state governor of Kogi, Yahaya Bello.

But in a tweet on Tuesday evening, Mr Shehu dismissed the claim, saying he was pleased with his current state of health.
