According to multiple reports, both the Secretary to Osun State Government, Mr. Wole Oyebamiji and the Commissioner for Commerce and Industry in Plateau, Abe Aku have tested positive for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
This was disclosed on Wednesday in two separate statements issued by the Plateau Commissioner for Information and Communications, Dan Manjang and Osun Commissioner for Health, Rafiu Isamotu in which he stated that ten new cases were also discovered.
With this development, the number of infections in Osun arose to 127 with 74 active cases. Meanwhile Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau directed all members of the State Executive Council to undergo COVID-19 tests and thereafter isolate themselves after Aku tested positive.
Aku explained that based on the governor’s directive, specimens of the commissioners are to be taken and forwarded to the COVID-19 Laboratory at the National Veterinary Research Institute (NVRI), Vom for testing.
Also state government has asked members of the public to be guided by unnecessary visits to members of the State Executive Council while they are in isolation.
This is to prevent the possible spread of the disease and to show leadership by example after Governor Lalong and his family have carried out the test earlier where all of them tested negative.
