The Oyo state Commissioner for Youths and Sports, Seun Fakorede, has tested positive for COVID-19.
This was made known through a statement by him as he confirmed to have been tested positive for COVID-19 and disclosed that “there’s no cause for any panic” as he’s “very well, safe and sound without any symptoms/breakdown.”
He said he never expected that he would ever be tested positive despite the demands of the office he occupies as he’s been careful since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said, “I took the test just like others and didn’t nurse any fear. I was asymptomatic, I still am, and I remain fearless.
“I have immediately followed and adhered strictly to the directives of the Incident Management for the Oyo State Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic.”
According to him, “COVID-19 is not in anyway a death sentence — So, while I acknowledge my Principal, Governor Seyi Makinde, for the efforts he has put in place to tackle the pandemic, I want to further urge us all to continue to do everything to minimize the spread of this virus.
“I will remain in isolation till I fully recover, I will fight this, victoriously — please continue to comply with all the directives of the COVID-19 Task Force. Stay safe!”
