Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has tested negative to coronavirus, according to the Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu.
Taking to his twitter handle, @Babafemi ojudu, on Wednesday, said, “Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo tests negative.”
He did not say when the test was conducted.
Osinbajo’s spokesman, Mr Laolu Akande, confirmed it.
He said, “Good morning sirs and ma: (I) have been inundated with calls on whether indeed the VP had undergone a COVID-19 test and the outcome. Yes, he has and results negative. An official tweet would follow. Thanks.”
Osinbajo went on self-isolation on Monday night, following reports that the Chief of Staff to the President, Mr Abba Kyari, had tested positive to coronavirus.
The VP was one of many government officials that Kyari had direct contact with upon his return from a trip to Germany and Egypt last week.
The VP did not come to work at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday.
