Nigeria’s Foreign Affairs minister, Geoffrey Onyeama, is so, so happy. And the reason is understandable – the cerebral diplomat just recovered from the dreaded coronavirus.
Breaking the good news on his social media handle, the Enugu State-born gentleman had this to say: “By the very special grace of God my latest #COVID19 test result came back NEGATIVE after three weeks isolation”.
Continuing, he added: “I am eternally grateful to my family, the C-in-C and VP, the medical team, relations, friends, colleagues, religious leaders and numerous well-wishers, who through their care, prayers, fasting, messages of support and encouragement never let me walk alone”.
Onyeama, indeed, has a million and one reasons to be grateful to God. Especially because his bestman and former chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, l’ost his life to the same virus.
He battled and defeated COVID-19 after about three weeks.
