Former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, has revealed he tested positive for COVID-19. Obasanjo disclosed this on Friday when he spoke at a colloquium held in the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta, Ogun state.

He admitted although he was concerned, he had no symptoms.

“It will surprise you that I was tested positive for Coronavirus. I called them to test me, they came on a Saturday, I did not get the result till Wednesday and it came out positive but I had no symptoms.

“Three days after they tested me again and 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 your being positive.

“I told her I had no symptoms and she said it could be a faulty result. But I was tested positive. Since then I have been tested three times negative, so, if you want to come near me, you can come near me.

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