Akeredolu confirmed his status via his Twitter handle on Tuesday.

The Governor tweeted: “Today, I tested positive for #COVID19. All is well. I’m asymptomatic and have been self -isolating.
“Work continues. Your continued prayers over my wellbeing are most appreciated.”

The governor said he is already in self-isolation as required by the case management guidelines of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) for someone who is asymptomatic.
