By Gift Chapi Odekina
The Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu, has confirmed that he and members of his family tested negative to the Corona Virus after a period of isolation in London.
The principal lawmaker, Elumelu confirmed this to pressmen in Abuja.
The lawmaker called on the leadership of the House and other members of the House of Representatives, to also subject themselves to the test.
Elumelu “who was in isolation and his entire family from London, took the Corona virus test and result confirmed them all negative”, according to a statement he signed.
He “urged every member and leadership to do same”.
Recall that Spokesman of the House, Rep. Benjamin Kalu had last week Tuesday March 24 denied that any member of the House, tested negative to the pandemic.
He stressed that the House would have exposed such a member, if it ever happened.
The House embarked on a two-week recess on Tuesday to fight the pandemic and follow up on an Economic Stimulus Bill to cushion effect of the pandemic on the economy.
