Kayode Fayemi, governor of Ekiti state, says he has taken a test to know his COVID-19 status.
Fayemi disclosed this in a tweet on Wednesday.
The governor said though he has no symptoms, he took the test after coming in contact with two people who tested positive for the virus.
He added that he has also gone into self-isolation pending when his result is out.
He, however, did not disclose the identity of the persons he had come in contact with.
Fayemi asked his “colleagues” to get tested as well.
“I just took a CoviD 19 test, having gone into self isolation since yesterday evening. I’m asymptomatic and feel well, but I was in meetings with two people who had since tested positive. I look forward to an all clear and have encouraged all my colleagues to take the test,” he wrote
Abba Kyari, chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, and Bala Mohammed, governor of Bauchi state, have both tested positive for coronavirus.
Mohammed had gone into self-isolation after shaking hands with a son of Atiku Abubakar, former vice-president, who tested positive for the virus.
On Wednesday, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, who has been in self-isolation, tested negative for coronavirus.
There are currently 46 confirmed cases of the disease in Nigeria.
