Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has revealed that members of his household ran from him when he tested positive for COVID-19.
Obasanjo revealed this on Friday, March 5, while speaking at a colloquium held in the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta, Ogun state to celebrate his 84th birthday.
Obasanjo said, “It will surprise you that I tested positive for COVID-19. I called them to come and test me. They came on a Saturday, I didn’t get the result till Wednesday and it came out positive but I didn’t see any symptoms. When they came three days after, they tested me and said I am negative, that is three days after I tested positive. My daughter, Iyabo, is an epidemiologist and I called her to explain. She said maybe they tested me at the later stage of being positive.”
The former president added, “I told her I had no symptoms and she said it could be a faulty result. But I tested positive. Since then I have been tested three times and the test came back negative. So, if you want to come near me, you can come near me. It is nothing to worry about. When I tested positive, my household ran from me. I told them to stay in their place while I stayed in mine.”
