COVID-19: Bukola Olopade Tests Positive, First Case In Nigerian Sports by MelesZenawi: 7:26am On Mar 27
Former Ogun State Commissioner of Youth and Sports, Bukola Olopade, has confirmed testing positive to the coronavirus, The PUNCH reports.

He becomes the first sports personality in Nigeria to contract the virus.

Olopade, who had earlier announced in a video post on Tuesday that he had gone for the COVID-19 test, kept to his promise to reveal his status once the results were released.

In a video posted online, Olopade said he had been in self-isolation since he realised he had symptoms of the deadly virus.

“A few days ago I did make a video that I have been tested for COVID-19, I did promise to make it public once it was done and it has come out a couple of hours ago, that I tested positive for COVID-19,” Olopade said in a video he posted on Thursday.

“As you all know, it’s not a death sentence, it’s not the end of the world, I feel no symptoms, I feel great and I feel healthy. But I have been called in and I have packed my stuff ready to go in for observation and by the special grace of God, I will come out with a clean bill of health.”

The Chief Executive Officer of Nilayo Sports Management, however, advised the general public to adhere strictly to the government directive that people should stay at home and observe the social distancing due to the outbreak of the deadly virus.

“Please stick to all the advice by the government and the World Health Organisation. Please stay at home and do your social distancing and wash your hands regularly. I will see you all in a rebound.”

If you look at this graph released on the 20th carefully, it examines the total tests conducted vs total confirmed cases in these countries.
I keep wondering how many citizens have actually been tested in this nation. It its just about 500, and we've recorded over 60 cases already, then its safe to presume that 1 in 10 already have the virus.

I weep for Nigerians who never listen to simple instructions to stay indoors except when trying to purchase things essential for their survival. I went out briefly yesterday to purchase some drugs at a place which involves crossing to the other side of the road and my utmost surprise, I could still see lots of busses passing by people filled to the brim.

All the presidents of the world are leading from the warfront, Buhari is leading in hidden caves and someone said we still have president in this country. I wonder how Buhari supporters are sleeping in the night with this ineptitude from this man. At least, everyone has been seen sanwo olu and his activities. To be sincere, I regret the day I supported this government and their agents of devil.

This shit is right here, and it is happening.

Many have not come to that reality, not that they don't believe or know that the pandemic is right here in our shores, but the consciousness that damn, this is happening for real.

A week ago, we had just 2 cases, and more like just like we won Ebola, we did this again, and yes we will. But hey, this sh-it is here.

Now, I have had so many in a bid to portray or alleviate the fears of people try to play down the virus and that it is not as dreaded as the media has carried it. As far as I am concerned, this people are no different from those that are saying the virus does not exist.

We need to be afraid, yes We need have Faith, love, care, precautious. Fear is a good thing is bad thing, being proactive, having faith in God is a good thing , it spurs you to action. But you must not act in in fear, it brings us to the consciousness of danger and a need to act. We must act, and act fast.


One of the good measures taken is closing interstate borders, and I think it should be enforced. The pros to this greater than the cons.


See, read my text. Nigeria does not have an health care system. Dead system. So, we must prevent this poo from turning into a real pandemic.

The same politicians we are happy are with us, suffering with us, will carry all the best of the worst medical equipments and take it to their home and get treated, they don't care of you die.


Individual Steps you can take

1. If your village is in your state, you must go now. Act fast.

2. You must self isolate. Self isolation is not just for those that have the virus, infact, in the Nigerian cereno, you should. Try as much as possible to self isolate.

3. Except you are trying to get food and medicals, or basic necessities of life. Which is just food, clothing and shelter, don't go anywhere.

4. Yes. Hunger is Covid 20. Stock food and eat rationally. Ration your food. Don't be a glutton.

5. As much as possible, be positive, and smile. Everyone is frowning and angry, it is not changing anything

6. Pray. Prayer works, and it is still working. Praying shows you trust the sustenance of God, we pray because we know we need God and rely on him. A prayer less fella is one who trust in his on own power and wills. We must in this period pray.

7. Lastly, this too shall pass. It is not a prophesy, it is reality, nothing last forever. And that alone gives us hope.


Please be safe. God bless you





Everything you read, take the message. Reject the lies. You must have the spirit of God to decipher this.

Anybody can be wrong, I can be wrong. But you must not remain in Error.

God bless you Again.
