Governor Bello, who disclosed this on Sunday on Channels Television, said his government is using an unnamed app to check the virus in Kogi.

The governor, however, assured that the state’s sensitisation programme was working since nobody has shown any symptoms of the COVID-19 in the state.

When asked how many people have his government tested for the virus, Governor Bello said:

“So far so good, we have launched an app and if nobody shows any cause for test, we wouldn’t go out there to catch any human being to say we want to do test because there is adequate sensitisation of our citizens.”

Governor Bello admitted that the state doesn’t have a test centre, but sounded relieved that there was a test centre in Abuja among other neighbouring states.

“But we have test kits that we have on our own purchased in the event that there is a need to collect any sample. But nobody has come up with any issue, and there is no reported case, what are we going to collect? he asked.

“So far so good, I think our sensitisation programme is working excellently well. Our people are following our instructions and we are good for it.”

Bello had once disclaimed rumours he tested positive for COVID-19. He said he was “fit as a fiddle” and challenged his detractors to a bout.
