The commission, in a statement on its twitter handle @NDDCOnline, also disclosed that the test result of Dr Odjougboh came out positive.

The tests on staff working at the commission’s headquarters became imperative following the reported death of one of its directors as a result of COVID-19.

The tweet reads: “As #NDDC headquarters staff undergo isolation and #Covid19 screening, six of 33 staff members in the Office of the Executive Director (Projects), Dr Cairo #Ojougboh, have tested positive to Covid-19. However, Dr Ojougboh tested negative.”

Recall that the headquarters had earlier been shut down following the confirmation that one of its directors, Elder Ibanga Bassey Etang, died from complications arising from COVID-19.
