It was reported that the president’s right-hand man had last week tested positive for COVID-19 but has only experienced mild symptoms, according to family sources.

Oyedepo was represented by his son who, Pastor David Oyedepo (junior), who is also a senior pastor in the church.
The items were presented to the state government at the governor’s office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, the state capital, on Wednesday, April 1.
