…Says there’re local solutions

GOVERNOR of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, has narrated how he recovered from COVID-19 a week after he tested positive to the disease.      

  The governor who had earlier tested ‘positive’ of COVID-19 took to Twitter on Sunday to announce that he has been certified negative after days of isolation.

  In a telephone interview during a programme on Fresh FM, Ibadan, on  Monday, Makinde disclosed that  he mainly used honey, vitamin C and blackseed oil.

He said: “My very good friend and brother, Dr Muyideen Olatunji is the one in charge of the Primary Healthcare for Oyo State. He came to me and said, look, I am going to send to you this blackseed oil, it boosts immunity. So I mixed it with honey and took one teaspoon in the morning and one in the evening.

 “So, there are local solutions to boost immunity. Our people should not fret. Just as I have been able to get the virus out of my system, so will it be for majority of our people”.

“I have lost a little bit of weight which I think is good. When you are in isolation, the tendency is just to watch television and eat. I was eating amala.

But I was also using the treadmill. It has also been a period to reflect and look at the programmes, policies and the things we want to do for the people of Oyo State and also reflect on how the COVID-19 is going to affect us socially and economically,” he said.

He also said he would make sure that no citizen of the state died from contracting the virus.
