Obafemi Hamzat, deputy governor of Lagos state, says it is not easy to undergo coronavirus test.

In a post on his Twitter handle, he said though the experience was unpleasant, it is imperative for him to perform his role as a leader.

Hamzat, who said he tested negative for the disease, appealed to the public to play their part in containing the spread by staying home.

“The COVID-19 test is not a pleasant experience but it is important that as a leader nothing distracts me from my role this period,” he tweeted

“I’m happy to announce that my COVID-19 test result is NEGATIVE. A big thank you to all our health workers. Please play your role, #StayHomeSaveLives.”

On Friday, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of the state, and his wife, Joke, also shared the news of their test results; they tested negative to the virus.

Nigeria has 209 confirmed cases of coronavirus spread across 14 states, with four deaths recorded.

Lagos has the highest number of confirmed cases — 109. Out of the 109 recorded cases in the state, 24 patients have recovered.
