The Lagos State Commissioner for Information, Mr Gbenga Omotosho, has said there is no big deal about the COVID-19 status of the state Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi.
Omotosho said he was not aware if the Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, would go for another COVID-19 test.
He said, “Apparently, he (the governor) does not see it as a direct issue of concern; this is not the first time someone who works with him will contract COVID-19. This should not be any big deal; you know there was a time we said 10 people tested positive for COVID-19 at the Lagos House in Marina, I don’t think this one will take a different process.”
Omotosho, in a press statement on Monday, disclosed that Abayomi had tested positive for COVID-19.
The statement read in part, “Subsequent to close contact with persons feeling unwell and testing positive for the COVID-19 infection, the Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, has tested positive for the virus. (Punch)
