Following the information that the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Muhammed and Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, with whom he has had close contact have both tested positive for coronavirus, the Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has gone into self-isolation
A statement signed by Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr. Crusoe Osagie, said the governor has sent his samples for testing.
According to Osagie , “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.”
Osagie said although Obaseki is not showing any symptoms of the virus, he has taken the necessary precaution to self-isolate to protect people that may otherwise come in contact with him.
