- Fayemi has vowed to overcome coronavirus
- The Ekiti governor disclosed this from isolation
- According to him, he will soon return back to his duty post
Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti state has vowed to come back stronger.
The governor said he would overcome his current health challenge and return to his duty post sooner than expected.
Fayemi said this in a video clip from where he was observing self-isolation.
The video was made available to newsmen by Fayemi ‘s Chief Press Secretary, Olayinka Oyebode, in Ado Ekiti, News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
Going further, the governor assured Ekiti people and Nigerians that he was okay.
He also expressed delight at the outpouring of love, prayers and solidarity showed to him by Nigerians.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that time and again, the fact is laid bare that the global pandemic, COVID-19, is not a respecter of social, financial or even religious status, especially with the recent report that Fayemi contracted the virus.
On his Twitter page on Wednesday, July 22, Governor Fayemi announced that he has tested positive for the disease and has, therefore, temporarily handed over the state's mantle of leadership to his deputy, Adebisi Egbeyemi.
But the Ekiti leader is not the only governor in the list of Nigerian politicians who have been infected with the coronavirus.
Legit.ng had also reported months back that Ekiti had been plunged into anxiety after Fayemi confirmed he had taken coronavirus test after meeting with two confirmed cases.
Fayemi made this known in a tweet on his verified official Twitter handle on Wednesday morning, March, 25, at exactly 10:57 am.
The governor's revelation came in barely twenty-four hours after President Muhammadu Buhari's chief of staff, Abba Kyari, tested positive to the deadly infection.
Fayemi said he had gone on self-isolation since Tuesday evening, March 24, after confirmation that two of the people who he had a meeting with tested positive.
The governor, however, also urged colleagues and people who might have established contact with him to do the Covid-19 test and go on self-isolation to avoid further spread.
