Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has disclosed that he once tested positive for coronavirus, and recovered from the dreaded virus within 72 hours.
Obasanjo made the disclosure on Friday at a colloquium put together to celebrate his 84th birthday at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta.
The former President, who turned 84 on March 5, said he was a bit concerned and had to call his daughter, Dr. Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello, that he did not have any symptoms, but he tested positive for COVID-19.
The former president said that his daughter’s verdict was that the result might be faulty and required further tests, adding that subsequent tests 72 hours after, all certified him negative.
He, therefore, advised Nigerians to always keep safe and adhere to all the COVID-19 guidelines, disclosing further that he had tested negative three times.
