The Commissioner of Youth Development and Sports in Oyo State, Seun Fakorede, has announced his Coronavirus status.

The youngest commissioner in the state, on Friday, revealed that he has since gone into isolation in order not to spread the disease.

The 28-year-old further stated that he has no idea how he contracted the virus because he usually takes all the necessary precautions.

He called on Nigerians to note that COVID-19 is not a death sentence as man, including the governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde recovered from the virus.

Fakorede said, “I tested positive for COVID-19 and I want you to know that there’s no cause for any panic as I’m very well, safe and sound without any symptoms/breakdown.”

“Before the test result came in, I had no inkling that I was going to test positive. This was because, despite the demands of the office I occupy, I have been careful since COVID-19 crept into our world — 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.”

“COVID-19 is not in any way 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!”
