Professor Abayomi however, stressed that this is not the first time Governor Sanwo-Olu is having the COVID-19 test.

According to him, the governor had at least three since May when he announced that 10 of his aides had tested positive for the virus.

Professor Abayomi noted that the government is seeing a slight increase in the number of COVID-19 positive cases in clusters within Lagos.

He advised all Lagosians to adhere to the prescribed advisories of safe distancing, good hand, and respiratory hygiene, and avoidance of unnecessary gatherings.
