Wife of Ondo state governor, Mrs Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, has tested positive for Covid-19, according to a source at Ondo government house.

The source said the state’s first lady has gone on self-isolation.

The development comes two days after the governor announced that he had contracted the disease.

The source added that Mrs Oluwatoyin Adegbenro, wife of the late commissioner for health, has also tested positive for Covid-19.

Recall that Mr Wahab Adegbenro, late commissioner, died of Covid-19 complications on Thursday.

She is said to be receiving treatment at the hospital of her late husband in Akure, the state capital.

There were reports about how four out of the 19 members of the state house of assembly who accompanied Akeredolu to Abuja for the submission of his re-election nomination form fell ill but refused to undergo Covid-19 test.

The results of the test conducted for commissioners, senior special advisers, top political office holders in Ondo and other aides attached to the governor’s office are yet to be released.
