Akeredolu confirmed his status via his
Twitter handle on Tuesday.

He tweeted, “Today, I tested positive for # COVID 19 . All is well. I’ m asymptomatic and have been self -isolating.

Work continues . Your continued prayers over my well being are most appreciated.”

In a video attached to the tweet, Akeredolu said he took the COVID- 19 test after being treated for malaria.

The governor explained that he was advised to take the COVID- 19 test by a governor at the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held on Thursday in Abuja.

He said , “My good people of Ondo State. It gives me great pleasure to address you at this moment. I had malaria two days ago and was treated. I did get over it.

“At the APC NEC meeting, one of my colleagues spoke with me. He advised that malaria should not be just treated as likely. That I should go ahead and have a test for COVID- 19.

“The result came out today, June 30, 2020, and I tested positive. But I am asymptomatic. I am not feeling sick nor feeling odd in any way.

“But my doctor has said that I should take the necessary steps and self -isolate. I believe that supervised home management would be ideal for me for now. ”
