Nigerian Women’s Affairs Minister Dame Pauline Tallen has contracted coronary heart disease, she said.
In a Twitter message posted on Sunday, Ms. Pauline said her test confirmed she had contracted the virus after interacting with others who had contracted it.
She did not say when she took the test, but said she had covered her head.
She also said her family was not infected, as their own tests showed.
“So far, no symptoms have appeared on my body but I have kept myself in check for a long time. I ask for your prayers,” she said.
