Ondo governor, Akeredolu tests positive for COVID-19 (VIDEO)

The governor of Ondo state, Rotimi Akeredolu, has tested positive for Coronavirus.

Akeredolu disclosed this on his verified social media platforms on Tuesday.

The governor said he was already in self-isolation as required by the case management guidelines of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control for someone that is not showing symptoms. 

He said, "Earlier today, I got confirmation of a positive result for COVID-19. I am asymptomatic and not displaying any symptoms.

“I am currently self-isolating and supervised home management will be administered by the wonderful team at our Infectious Disease Hospital. I ask that we all stay safe and be well.”

Akeredolu joins a growing list of top public officials, who have tested positive for the virus.

Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, and most recently former governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi, has died from the virus.

Governors Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna, Bala Mohammed of Bauchia and Seyi Makinde of Oyo, recovered from the disease, while Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state is still in hospital battling with the virus.
