Nigeria’s Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has tested negative to the deadly Coronavirus.
This is coming barely 24 hours after Osinbajo went into self-isolation following fears he could have physically interacted with some persons who tested positive.
In a tweet by Senator Babafemi Ojudu, Special Adviser to the President of Nigeria on Political Matters the Vice President results have returned negative.
“Vice President Yemi Osinbajo tested negative,” he tweeted on Wednesday morning.
Recall that the Vice President had gone into self-isolation following the positive test of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, for coronavirus.
This was made known on Tuesday by Osinbajo’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande.
Akande said his principal is self-isolating in accordance with the “protocols” of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.
