Don’t politicize Makinde’s being Covid-19 positive – Oyo CPS
Oyo State government has urged individuals not to politicise the issue of coronavirus which the governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde tested positive for.
Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr Taiwo Adisa while reacting to insinuations in some quarters that the governor contracted the disease at a People’s Democratic Party, PDP zonal rally held in Ibadan said his boss did not contract the virus at the much-talked-about PDP Unification Rally.
The governor’s spokesman explained that there was no known incident of Covid-19 as of the time the rally was held.
Mr Adisa noted that the only case of exposure that Governor Makinde had to coronavirus was when he attended the National Economic Council, NEC meeting on March 19, 2020, a day after the Ibadan rally pointed out that all governors who attended that meeting were advised to employ self-isolation and undergo testing after one of the attendees tested positive to the virus.
He, therefore, warned individuals trying to politicise the governor’s case to desist from doing so and look for ways of supporting the efforts to stop the spread of the virus in Oyo state.
