The Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has stated that he is observing self-isolation having had close contact with the Bauchi State Governor, Senator Bala Muhammed, and Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, who have both tested positive for the pandemic Coronavirus.
This was made known in a statement issued by Obaseki’s Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr Crusoe Osagie, who noted that the governor has sent blood samples for testing.
Osagie said, “The governor has gone into self-isolation after the Governor of Bauchi State, Senator Bala Mohammed and Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, tested positive for coronavirus.
“The governor had met Senator Mohammed at the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) and National Economic Council (NEC) meetings. He also visited Mr Kyari.”
However, he noted that Governor Obaseki was not showing any symptoms of the virus, and he has taken the necessary precaution to self-isolate to protect people that may otherwise come in contact with him.
