“As directed by the leadership of the Lagos State House of Assembly on Sunday, I went and submitted myself for the COVID-19 test, and I have gotten my result. The test result came out Negative.

“To this end, it is our collective responsibility to be more careful and observe all the stipulated and given rules to help us prevent the transmission of this deadly virus.

“Wash your hands for 30 seconds regularly, avoid social gatherings, maintain social distancing and at all times wear a face mask.

“The use of hand sanitisers should become an habit and finally, avoid touching your face and nose,” he said.

Adewale, Chairman, House Committee on Transportation, said there was need to fight the pandemic, which was beyond keeping safe but also to also know their status.
