Betty Akeredolu, the wife of Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu has tested positive for COVID-19.
According to Vanguard Newspaper, the result of Mrs. Akeredolu’s test came back positive, days after her husband announced his COVID-19 status to be positive.
Earlier today, Aledeh News reported the death of the Commissioner for Health in Ondo State, Dr. Wahab Adegbenro, with COVID-19 suspected as the cause of his demise.
The test results of Commissioners and Special Advisers are yet to be released with tension already heightening in the state’s corridors of power.
Members of the Ondo House of Assembly have expressed their fears after being asked to go for COVID-19 tests. Many of them accompanied the governor of the state to Abuja where he went to pick his expression of interest and nomination forms for the governorship primaries of the APC in the state.
Aledeh News reported at the time that the Governor and his followers did not follow COVID-19 guidelines as they sang, danced and posed for pictures without masks nor physical distancing.
