An unnamed member of Nigeria Football Federation ( NFF) has been tests positive for the rampaging Corona virus pa pandemic, BSNSports.com.ng reports.
The pandemic which broke out in 2019 has been responsible for the stoppage of sporting activities globally including Nigeria.
The secretary of federation Mohammed Sanusi confirmed the news and said that the entire member of the federation will undergo a compulsory test on Thursday.
He further stated that the football house will be shut down for proper fumigation of the place.
” “Apart from him testing positive, I also had issues and had to go for tests when I was feeling ill and uncomfortable. But the truth is most of us have had contact with one another over the days, thus it is important we do the tests.
“I want to appreciate the Federal Government immensely for their efforts so far to contain the pandemic, and also officials of the Nigeria Centre for Disease and Control for agreeing to come to the NFF offices to conduct the tests. After the tests, the offices and the entire complex will be disinfected in line with the protocols of the COVID19,” stated Dr. Sanusi.
