Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State on Friday announced his Coronavirus test result.
The governor who had gone on isolation on Wednesday, March 25, following his meeting with two persons who have tested positive for the Coronavirus disease announced the result via his official Twitter account.
Fayemi thanked everyone who showed concern and urged them to remain vigilant.
“I just received my test result from NCDC and it is negative. Thanks to all for your concern.
“This, however, calls for continued vigilance on the part of everyone. Covid-19 is real and we cannot afford to be complacent,” he tweeted.
Fayemi revealed that he took a test after contact with two confirmed cases. The two contacts were believed to be President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, and Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed, both of whom tested positive to the deadly virus this week.
Nigeria has confirmed 65 active coronavirus cases in nine states – Lagos (44), FCT (11), Ogun (3), Ekiti (1), Oyo (1), Edo (1), Bauchi (2), Osun (1), and Rivers (1).
One of the cases died earlier this week, but a total of three people have made full recoveries and discharged.
