Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, his wife, Ibijoke and other members of his immediate family have tested negative for Coronavirus.

There have been fears that Sanwo-Olu needed to undertake Coronavirus test as he was among the governors who were in a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari in Abuja.

Kyari tested positive for Coronavirus recently, sending fear and panic among governors who had contact with him.

Asides Sanwo-Olu and his immediate family members who tested negative, all his aides have also tested negative for the virus.

Lagos Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi disclosed this on his twitter handle in the early hours of Friday.
