Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has gone into self-isolation following a close contact with his Bauchi counterpart, Bala Mohammed, and the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, who have both tested positive for Coronavirus.

In a statement yesterday in Benin City, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, said his principal had sent his samples for test.

His words: “The governor has gone into self-isolation after the Governor of Bauchi State, Senator Bala Mohammed, and the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, tested positive for Coronavirus.

“The governor had met Senator Mohammed at the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) and the National Economic Council (NEC) meetings. He also visited Mr. Kyari.”Osagie said although his boss was not showing any symptoms of the virus, he had, however, taken the necessary precaution to self-isolate to protect people that might come in contact with him.
