Ondo State Governor Recovers From COVID-19

The announcement was made less than 24 hours after his estranged deputy governor, Agboola Ajayi, asked him to hand over the government to him after 21 days as provided by the constitution because he was in self-isolation.

In what seems like a reaction to the statement amidst a charged political atmosphere ahead of governorship elections in the state, Akeredolu in a briefing on Monday said he had tested negative and was fit to continue in his capacity as governor.

Governor Akeredolu said, “After some days in isolation, our team of doctors decided to take a sample and I was tested again in accordance with the treatment protocols of COVID-19. The result came earlier today, and I tested negative.”

“Let me firstly give thanks to God for his mercies. I thank all citizens and residents of Ondo State who have shown me great love and genuine affection.

“They have shown this through their prayers, phone calls, and kind words expressing their regrets and solidarity. Rest assured that I am deeply inspired by your faith and goodwill and I wish to state categorically that this season shall soon pass away,” he added.

On Tuesday last week, the governor announced via his Facebook page as he had tested positive for the virus.

Although he was asymptomatic and did not show any symptoms of the disease, Governor Akeredolu had gone into self-isolation in line with the COVID-19 guidelines.
