Nigeria’s Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has tested negative for Coronavirus on Wednesday.

Osinbajo went into self-isolation after President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, tested positive for the virus.

However, Laolu Akande, media aide of the vice-president, said Osinbajo had undergone test for COVID-19 and that the result is negative.

”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,” he said.

President Muhammadu Buhari was also reported to have tested negative for the virus.
