Ekiti State governor Kayode Fayemi on Wednesday took the coronavirus test after meeting with two people have tested positive for coronavirus.
“I just took a CoviD 19 test, having gone into self isolation since yesterday evening,” Fayemi tweeted.
“I’m asymptomatic and feel well, but I was in meetings with two people who had since tested positive. I look forward to an all clear and have encouraged all my colleagues to take the test,” he added.
Although the governor did not name the two people that he met and have tested positive for the dreaded virus, there are strong indications that it could be Chief of Staff to the President Abba Kyari and Bauchi State Governor Bala Muhammed.
Both Kyari and Bala tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday. Fayemi, the Chairman of the Nigeria Governor’s Forum, was in attendance at the National Executive Council that held last week.
The meeting sits all the governors in the country, the president Muhammadu Buhari and his chief of staff.
