The governor said that he had malaria a few days ago and was treated. However, he said that after the National Executive Council of his party, the APC, one of his colleagues advised that he should have a coronavirus test. He said that the result came out today, June 30 and he tested positive.
However, the governor pointed out that he was asymptomatic and is yet to show any symptom of the disease. He said although he is not feeling sick or odd in any way, his doctors advised that he should take the normal treatment and self-isolate as he believes that supervised home management will be ideal for him for now.
Akeredolu also assured that work will be going on as he will be attending to files at home.
The Ondo State Governor will be the latest high profile Nigerian to have contracted the disease. The immediate past Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, passed away last week after a serious illness due to complications from the coronavirus disease.
