Governor who survived Coronavirus tells his story


Governor of Oyo state, Seyi MAkinde who tested negative 2ce after he earlier tested positive, as revealed how he was able to conquer the virus that has killed many all over the world.

In a recent interview with Fresh FM Ibadan on Monday April 6, the governor attributed his quick recovery to the consumption of some vital foods like vitamin c and others.

Makinde tested positive on the 5th of April, and thereafter went into self isolation to undergo treatment.

The governor revealed that  he took carrots, black seed oil, honey and vitamin C as he battled the disease during his isolation period.

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 black seed 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’ve been able to get the virus out off my system, so will it be for majority of our people. I’ve lost a little bit of weight which I think is good. When you’re 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.”
