The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki has gone into self-isolation few hours after the speaker of the Edo House Assembly tested positive to COVID-19.
Naija News learnt Obaseki took the bold step following his close contact with the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, and the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, who have both tested positive for coronavirus.
Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie revealed this in a statement on Wednesday.
“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 and National Economic Council meetings. He also visited Mr. Kyari,” the statement read.
