ALL members of Kaduna State House of Assembly and staff of the assembly have been directed to submit their samples for COVID-19 test.

  The Speaker of the House, Yusuf Zailani gave the directive following the discovery of a COVID-19 case among the assembly staff last week.

  Deputy Chairman, House Committee on Health, Ali Kalat disclosed this while speaking to journalists in Kaduna on Tuesday.

  According to him, the directive became necessary to ascertain the status of members and staff of the assembly, since a staff tested positive for the virus.

 Kalat, however, added that none of the lawmakers who have been tested has been confirmed positive.

  “The speaker has given directives that the entire workforce of the assembly should be subjected to coronavirus tests and the exercise is still going on at the assembly,” he said.

  “Going forward, we have to surrender ourselves for testing so that we will be sure that the entire members of the assembly and its workforce are COVID-19 negative.
