Oyo State Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Seun Fakorede has tested positive for coronavirus.

“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,” Fakorode, who’s the youngest cabinet member in Oyo State, tweeted on Friday.

“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 anyway 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!”

His result is coming less than 24 hours after ex-Governor of the state, Abiola Ajimobi died of COVID-19 in a private hospital in Lagos.

The state governor Seyi Makinde had also tested for the virus but he recovered days after.
