The Chairperson House of Representatives Committee on Diaspora, Hon. Tolu Akande-Sadipe K has said that her experience being COVID-19 positive has taught her a lesson that truly the virus should not be handled with levity especially amid the family unit and members of the same household.

Hon Sadipe-k who disclosed this at the Oyo Central Senatorial District Meeting on Thursday, said Covid is real, during her experience, each passing day was a gift, and with God first, proper medication, and management, she overcame.

The Honorable who has just survived the trauma of being COVID-19 positive, said “It felt great, I thank God for Life, my recovery and I was happy to be with my people at the Senatorial District meeting, being my first home outing since the battle with the deadly virus.

“My utmost gratitude to family members, leaders, political allies, and all the good people of Oluyole for their prayers and well wishes and also my colleagues at the House of Assembly, who stood by me in prayer during the ordeal.

She advised members of her constituency and Nigerians to observe social distancing religiously, and wear face masks appropriately until further notice. “This is not the time for socializing.

“When ordinary fever or cough is prolonged, or when that respiratory discomfort is accompanied by joint aches, loss of smell or taste, irritation, body pains, and palpitations. Please isolate, test and seek medical attention”, she said.

She noted that Covid is deceptive, while advised not to self medicate when feel like having malaria. “Seek medical attention urgently. I promise my constituents, continued good representation and enhanced projects that will put the constituency on the front burner of developmental initiatives”.
