Governor Fayemi tests positive to coronavirus

Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, has tested positive for Covid-19.

Mr Fayemi disclosed his status today.

“I took my third Covid-19 test yesterday and it came back positive. I’m generally ok and I’m already self isolating at home and receiving the best of care from my medical team. I’m delegating critical tasks to my Deputy but will continue routine duty from home. JKF,” the governor wrote on twitter.

Mr Fayemi joins a growing list of state governors and high profile Nigerians who have tested positive for the deadly bug.

They include the governors of Kaduna, Oyo, Bauchi and Delta states.

Many of them have since recovered from the virus.

Nigeria has recorded over 30,000 cases of coronavirus since it recorded its index case in February.
