Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has instructed all members of his cabinet to embark on a compulsory COVID19 test.
He gave the directive through the Commissioner for Information, Donald Ojogo, in a statement on Tuesday.
Akeredolu also explained that all his political aides, who might have had contacts with him during the cause of his engagement, should immediately go and check their status.
The statement reads, “As you all know, the result has come out positive even as Mr Governor (Akeredolu) wasted no time in disclosing his status.
“Flowing from the above, Mr Governor has resolved to self-isolate in line with accepted global standards in respect of COVID-19 protocols.
This becomes necessary in order to ensure a proper determination and direction of focus.
“Accordingly, there is nothing to fear; and no component of government business will be adversely affected within the period of the governor’s self-isolation.
“In the meantime, Governor Akeredolu has directed all members of the cabinet, close aides and others who have had reasons for constant contacts with him to undergo compulsory tests.”
