Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, south-south Nigeria has revealed that he and his family have now tested negative for COVID 19.
The Governor announced this in a statement on Twitter which read: My wife, my daughter and I have tested negative for #COVID 19, along with other members of the family.
Recall that Governor Okowa had on July 1 announced that he and his wife tested positive for COVID 19 and that they were continuing with their isolation, which they went into when their daughter tested positive for the virus.
Okowa in the statement expressed gratitude to God and appreciated all who have interceded for them in prayers.
The Governor, however, appeals to all residents of the state to obey all instructions and regulations in the collective fight to stop the transmission of the coronavirus.
