Makinde to give palliatives to Oyo residents - The Nation News

Taiwo Adisa, The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, has declined the circulating news that Governor Seyi Makinde incurred Corona virus (COVID-19) at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) unification rally held on March 18 in Ibadan.
Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State said, the hints in some quarters that Makinde, who on Monday his corona virus status as positive incurred the pandemic virus at the PDP rally was untrue
Daily Post gathered that Taiwo Adisa said this in a statement issued to newsmen on Tuesday in Ibadan that there was no known incident of Corona virus as of the time the rally was held, NAN reports.
Adisa said: “The issue of the governor being said to have contracted COVID-19 at the March 18 PDP South-West Zonal Unification Rally doesn’t come to play because there was no known incident of the virus in Oyo State at that time.
“Also, the governor didn’t have any symptom(s) as of that time.
“At the time that the rally was held, there was no known case of the COVID-19 and after the rally.
“Gov. Makinde did put out a message to indicate that if he had got a hint of the existence of Coronavirus in the state an hour to the rally, he would have canceled the event.
“He took responsibility for holding the rally. So, we can’t afford to politicise the issue of COVID-19. It is beyond politics.”
Meanwhile, Makinde has since acknowledge his fault and apologized for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rally held in Ibadan amid Corona virus crisis.
