But in a message on Wednesday, Laolu Akande, the vice-president’s spokesman, said his principal had undergone test for COVID-19 and that the result is negative.
He said, ”Good morning sirs and ma: have been inundated with calls on whether indeed the VP had undergone a COVID19 test and the outcome. Yes, he has and results negative. An official tweet would follow. Thanks.”
