It is with deep concern that we receive the news of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu SAN testing positive to the highly infectious Covid19 virus.
While we are a bit glad that the Governor is at the moment asymptomatic, we are however concerned about the possibility of identifying, isolating and testing those who may have been exposed to His Excellency particularly within the last 14 days.
A statement by the PDP’s Director Of Media and Publicity, Zadok Akintoye says it is quite unfortunate that the actions of Mr. Governor during his trip to Abuja to submit his nomination form may have also exposed members of the House of Assembly who joined him on that trip.
A viral video clearly showing the Governor sneezing into his hands in the midst of the honorable members of the House of Assembly, was shared online making it imperative that the National Centre for Disease Control takes immediate action in testing and isolating anyone who may have been exposed to the Governor within the last few days.
Our prayers and best wishes goes to the Governor at these time and we hope that the lessons learnt would help in ensuring greater compliance with laid down rules for mitigating the spread of the virus.
