Former member of the House of Representatives from Benue State, Mrs Rebecca Apedzan has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus in Makurdi.
A stalwart of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mrs. Apedzan also served as a Commissioner under Senator George Akume’s administration in the state.
The state Governor, Samuel Ortom disclosed this on Monday at the end of an expanded consultative meeting of the state’s COVID-19 Action Committee in Makurdi.
According to Ortom, though it was not clear how the former National Assembly member contracted the virus, she had been taken in for treatment.
Speaking further, the governor explained that he would be going for another COVID-19 test because he was in a meeting with the former lawmaker on Sunday, urging all those who had contacts with her in the last few days to do same.
