According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Bello gave this description during the Night of Tributes for Nda-Isaiah in Abuja on Sunday.

“In November, I was down with COVID-19, and Uncle Sam kept calling to encourage and guide me. Little did I know that COVID-19 will lead to his death,” the governor said.

He prayed to God to give the bereaved family the fortitude to bear the loss.

On behalf of the family, the younger brother of the deceased, Abraham Nda-Isaiah, thanked the governor for the eulogies poured on the deceased.
