A former Secretary to the State Government (SSG) in Anambra State, Mr Oseloka Obaze, has tested positive for coronavirus.
Obaze, who confirmed his status in a message to newsmen in Awka on Wednesday, said he has isolated himself and also called on all those who had contact with him in recent times to do so too.
According to him, he underwent a pre-travel COVID-19 test and the result came out positive.
The retired United Nations diplomat and governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the 2017 governorship election in Anambra State, said: “Yesterday (Tuesday), I underwent a routine pre-travel COVID-19 test. Today, I received the result which indicated that I tested positive for the virus.
“Prior to that, I had no symptoms whatsoever and was very disciplined about my COVID-19 preventive protocols.
“I’m quarantining and following the recommended treatment regimen. I’ve reached out to those I might have been in contact with recently to inform them to self-isolate. COVID-19 is real. I urge everyone to take it seriously.”
With the recent increase in the number of COVID-19 cases, Nigeria has officially entered a second wave of the pandemic.
This is according to the announcement made by the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19.
