“Best regards to all. Pleased to report that after taking my prescribed course of COVID-19 medication, I feel very well and great. The doctors have confirmed that I am now free of the virus and it is okay for me to resume all official activities,” he wrote.


“I wish to convey my sincere appreciation to all those who showed great concern for my health status, through various channels of communication.

“I also wish to commend the FCTA medical team for their commitment and dedication to duty. All COVID-19 patients in the FCT are truly thankful to you.

“Let me use this opportunity to further reiterate that COVID-19 is very much around. I therefore once more, appeal to residents to get themselves vaccinated. Doing so could save their lives.”
