Obasanjo narrates coronavirus experience

Obasanjo Foundation wins Igbere TV award

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has narrated how he survived coronavirus.

Unknown to many, he tested positive for the disease, as he announced on Friday during his 84th birthday speech.

While the pandemic has killed some prominent Nigerians, other notable people have survived it.
The latter includes some seven governors, including those of Oyo, Lagos, Bauchi and Ekiti.

Obasanjo said:

“I called them to come and test me, they came on a Saturday, I didn’t get the result until Wednesday and it came out positive but I didn’t see any symptoms.

“They came three days after they tested me and said I am negative – that is three days after I tested positive.

“My daughter, Iyabo, is an epidemiologist and I called her to explain, she said maybe they tested me at the later stage of my being positive.

“I told her that I had no symptoms and she said it could be a faulty result.

“But I was tested positive. Since then, I have tested three times negative; so, if you want to come near me, you can come near me.

“It is nothing to worry about, when I was tested positive, my household was running from me, I told them to stay in their place while I stay in mine.”
