The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State, has expressed its sympathy to the State Governor, Fayemi, who just confirmed that he contracted COVID-19.
The party through the Secretary of the State Caretaker Committee, Diran Odeyemi, wished the governor quick recovery, urging those around him to isolate themselves and undergo the COVID-19 test too.
Odeyemi, who said testing positive for Coronavirus was not a death sentence, added that Governor Fayemi will surely recover and come out negative.
The party urged Ekiti people to keep faith with the COVID-19 precautionary measures outlined by Governor Fayemi’s administration, bearing in mind that the virus is real and yet to have any cure.
“As a party, we wish the governor well. We pray that he recovers quickly. “We also wish to call on our people in the length and breadth of Ekiti State to continue to observe the Covid-19 protocols so as to keep low the rate of infection in the State,” Odeyemi said
It was gathered that Fayemi had been previously tested twice with the results coming out negative. But on his twitter handle yesterday, Fayemi tweeted: “I took my third COVID-19 test yesterday and it came back positive.
“I am generally okay and I’m already self-isolating at home and receiving the best of care from my medical team.
He said, ” I’m delegating critical tasks to my Deputy, Chief Bisi Egbeyemi, but will continue routine duty from home.”
