Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has declared that he is capable of performing his official duties, as he is tested positive to COVID-19 pandemic.
In a broadcast to the people of Ondo state from the Government House, Akure and monitored by SUNSHINETRUTH, Akeredolu said he is not feeling sick, promising to continue to do his jobs as expected.
The governor also asked his supporters to continue with his reelection project as he is sure of victory.
Akeredolu said, “I had malaria few days ago and I was treated and I did get over it . And as at the time we had our party NEC, and my colleagues call on me and spoke with one of them who felt that malaria should not be treated lightly that I should go ahead and have a test of COVID -19.
“The result came out today 30th June ,2020 and I tested positive but asytomatic . I am not feeling sick nor feeling hot anyway. But my doctors have advised that I should take the normal treatment and self isolate.
“I believe that supervise home management will be ideal for me now. So, for now, I will be isolated. Let me assure our people that as you can see me, there are many of us that don’t have the symptoms that is there and you cannot see it.
“This time, we would conduct another test and we will know the result. Let me assure our people that nothing will stop the work from going on. I want to plead with political associates that they should continue with the (reelection) project because we are sure to win. My trust in God to get through this is on shakable. So, my people, if you have malaria get tested,” the governor said.
