The CG, who disclosed this in a WhatsApp message to our correspondent this morning, explained that he is already on self-isolation since he returned from the United Kingdom on March 22.
The PUNCH later called him on phone and Babandede confirmed the message he sent on WhatsApp.
“I urge my loved ones, Immigration Officers and Nigerians to pray for me and all those affected.”
Babandede urged immigration officers to continue working with his deputy to move the service forward.
He added, “It is a very difficult time but we can’t change what God destined for us.
