Former Ogun State Sports Commissioner, Bukola Olopade, on Thursday, commended Nigerian doctors after he was discharged from the Isolation centre in Lagos.
Olopade, who was confirmed positive for coronavirus three weeks after returning from United Kingdom, was discharged on Wednesday night after his second test confirmed he was negative of the virus.
Olopade, in a video released on Thursday morning, revealed that Nigerian doctors are great risking their lives in ensuring lives are save.
He said: “Three weeks ago, I was diagnosed with COVID-19 and I made a video where I explained to the whole world what happened. I made the video because I needed to be responsible to those I have been in contact with and also to the society.
“To God be the glory, last night (Wednesday), I got a text telling me that I have tested negative twice and that I would therefore be discharged.
“I want to use this opportunity to thank God Almighty for sparing me through the psychological battle and also battle against COVID-19 which has been defeated.
“My biggest thanks go to the medical team here, the doctors, nurses and domestic staff. I now understand these people are put on earth taking risk to their lives but caring and ensuring lives are saved.
“I want to thank Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for amazing job he’s doing with his team at this time. He he has shown leadership beyond any other thing,” he said.
