The former Commissioner for Youths and Sports in Ogun State, Bukola Olopade, has revealed that he has tested positive for Coronavirus.
Olopade is the MD of Nilayo Sports Management Company, an organization known for organising marathons in cities across Nigeria.
The former Commissioner revealed this in a video released on social media in Lagos State on Thursday.
Olopade had noted three days ago that he has self-isolated himself for five days, saying he developed two of the Coronavirus symptoms.
He, however, released a video on Thursday that he has tested positive to the virus, and he is strong and healthy with no serious symptoms.
Olopade noted that testing positive to COVID-19 is not a death sentence, expressing optimism that he would come out stronger in a few days.
The former commissioner pleaded with Nigerians to adhere to the warnings and precautions of the government, as he noted that the disease is real.
