The Oyo state governor who tested for coronavirus last week has recovered from the virus. The first term PDP governor who drew criticism for hosting a rally in his state during the pandemic revealed this through a series of tweets.

He wrote,

“I am deeply moved by your prayers and support throughout this period. I am so thankful. This evening, I received my second negative test result for COVID-19. I especially thank Prof Temitope Alonge, who acted in my stead as Head of the Oyo State COVID-19 Task Force. I am also grateful to all members of the Task Force for their cooperation during this time. I will be resuming my responsibility as Head of the Task Force from tomorrow.”
