Coronavirus Hits Nigeria Hard Again As Two Nigerian Governors Go Into Isolation

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has gone into isolation.

The governor, who stated this on Saturday in a broadcast, said the measure was necessary as family members and senior government officials around him tested positive for COVID-19.

El-Rufai said he is in self-isolation as a precaution pending a COVID-19 test to be conducted on Sunday.

The governor had earlier tested positive for the virus in March but recovered after some weeks.

Other governors who had tested positive for the infection and had recovered include Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi; Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu; Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed; Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, amongst others.

Meanwhile, Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has gone into self-isolation, the state government said on Friday.

This was contained in a statement titled ‘Sanwo-Olu goes into self-isolation’ by the Lagos Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi.

He said one of the close aides to Sanwo-Olu tested positive for coronavirus, necessitating the governor to isolate.

However, Abayomi did not state the COVID-19 status of the governor.

The commissioner said Sanwo-Olu had been tested for COVID-19 for at least three times.
