A political group in Ondo State, Ibi Giga Ambassadors, has saluted the courage and sincerity of Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu for alerting the citizens of the state and Nigeria at large to his health status.
The group wished him speedy recovery as he went into self isolation.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Gov. Akeredolu on Tuesday declared on his twitter handle that he had tested positive for coronavirus.
Ibi Giga Ambassadors is a political group working for the re-election of Akeredolu.
The commendation was conveyed through a statement signed and made available to newsmen by Mr Adetunji Adeniyi, the Secretary of the Ibi Gíga Ambassadors.
“We appreciate God for His abundant grace over our amiable governor and we welcome and appreciate Mr Talk and Do for timely disclosing his status and his resolve to self-isolate immediately.
“This exemplary style of leadership is commendable and laudable.
“While we acknowledged that Covid -19 is a global pandemic which has held the whole world to a standstill, we want to say emphatically that it is not a death sentence, hence Mr governor will overcome this and will come out stronger,’’ the group said.
It called on all its members across the 18 local government areas of the state to be calm and be fervent in their prayers over the governor’s health.
“We should not relent in our concerted efforts towards mobilising across the state for our governor as we prepare for the forthcoming primary election in the state.
“We believe and we are assuring all our teeming supporters and the general public that there shall be light at the end of the tunnel,’’ it said.
The group advised all residents of Ondo State to adhere strictly to the directive on physical distancing and other health advisories issued by the NCDC and ministry of health from time to time. (NAN)
