COVID-19: Obaseki, Fayemi test negative

By Toby Prince

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has tested negative for the coronavirus following fears about his contact with two persons who had tested positive for the virus.

A statement on Thursday by his spokesman, Crusoe Osagie, said the result was that of the rapid diagnostic test, while that of the PCR test is being awaited.

Mr Osagie said Obaseki has decided to remain in self-isolation despite the result of the test.

“I can confirm that the governor tested negative for coronavirus when he ran the rapid diagnostic test for the virus. However, we are currently awaiting the result of more conclusive PCR test,” he said.

“In the meantime, the governor has decided to continue to work in self-solation and he is asymptomatic.”

Similarly, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti also tested negative for coronavirus.

Fayemi is among a long-list of prominent Nigerians who made contact with President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari and Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State who have both tested positive.
