Facts have now emerged that the governor may have inadvertently exposed several other people within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), without knowing, due to his movement in the past two weeks.

Today’s Echo gathers that Akeredolu’s diagnosis is coming barely two weeks after he visited the All Progressives Congress(APC) party headquarters in Abuja.

Akeredolu was at the party’s secretariat on June 16 to submit his nomination forms and had interacted with officials of the party. He was seen in a video flouting the social distancing guidelines during his visit to Abuja.
