Makinde, OYOINSIGHT.COM recalled, had announced that he was positive of the disease and went into isolation.

On Sunday night, he announced after taking two COVID-19 tests, he had become negative.

But speaking on phone with an Ibadan based private radio station, Fresh FM, Makinde gave detailed account of his time in isolation and how he was able to test negative after earlier testing positive.

Maintaining that he remained asymptomatic, Makinde said he only put in efforts to boost his immunity and used his time in isolation to regularly exercise on the treadmill.

In boosting his immunity to overcome the virus, he said he consumed Vitamin C, lots of carrots as well as blackseed oil mixed with honey.

He consequently urged all residents of the state not to panic, saying that local solutions existed to boost immunity and overcome the virus.

“My very good friend and brother, Dr Muyideen Olatunji is the one in charge of the Primary Healthcare for Oyo State. He came to me and said, look, I am going to send to you this blackseed oil, it boosts immunity. So I mixed it with honey and took one teaspoon in the morning and one in the evening.

“So, there are local solutions to boost immunity. Our people should not fret. Just as I have been able to get the virus out of my system, so will it be for majority of our people,” Makinde said.

According to Makinde, his days in isolation also offered him an ample time to reevaluate his programmes and policies for the state as well as how to handle the socioeconomic impacts of COVID-19 on the state.

“I have lost a little bit of weight which I think is good. When you are in isolation, the tendency is just to watch television and eat, I was eating amala. But I was also using the treadmill. It has also been a period to reflect and look at the programmes, policies and the things we want to do for the people of Oyo state and also reflect on how the COVID-19 is going to affect us socially and economically,” Makinde added.
