The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiohmole can now heave a sigh of relief as he tested negative for the novel Coronavirus, otherwise known as COVID-19.
According to a statement issued on Friday by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Lanre Issa Onilu, Oshiohmole presented himself for the test on Thursday, following fears he could have physically interacted with persons who tested positive for the virus.
Onilu noted that the test result released on Friday came out negative for the national chairman.
“Following fears he could have physically interacted with person[s] who tested positive to the coronavirus, Oshiomhole presented himself for a test on Thursday and it has just been confirmed that the result returned negative,” a part of the statement reads.
