Ogun State Government has cleared the air over the fear that the State Governor, Dapo Abiodun might have contacted coronavirus last week at the Aso Rock.
The workers at the governor’s office had been nursing the fear over the status of governor Abiodun who attended the Federal Executive Council meeting last Thursday.
At the FEC some Governors attended the meeting which was presided over by the Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo.
But, Bauchi State Governor, Muhammad Bala who was also at the meeting is currently in isolation following his contact with Atiku Abubakar’s son.
Abubakr’s son was tested positive for Coronavirus on Sunday evening.
The Bauchi State Governor announced that he travelled with the former vice president’s son in the same flight from Lagos to Abuja, had handshake with him and exchanged pleasantries.
However, there is strong indication that Bala could have also exchanged handshake with Governor Abiodun and other governors at the meeting.
In his reaction, the spokesperson to Ogun State Governor, Remmy Hassan, explained that, Bala’s contact with Atiku’s son was after the NEC meeting.
He maintained that, the NEC was on Thursday while Bala’s contact with Atiku’s son was on Friday.
He said “The information we have concerning that matter is that as at the time the Governor came from NEC , he had not had contact with Atiku son. The contact with Atiku son came after the NEC .
“As at the time that NEC was held, the Bauchi Governor had not have contact with Atiku’ son . Whether my Governor and the Bauchi Governor exchanged pleasantry, I don’t know.
“But as at the time NEC was held , the two people, that is , Atiku’s son and Bala have not met. The meeting was just last week Friday and NEC was on Thursday.”
