Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has revealed that he consumed carrots, black seed oil mixed with honey and vitamin C to fight the Coronavirus disease.
The Governor, who spoke in an interview with Fresh FM Ibadan on Monday, April 6, said in order to boost his immune system to fight the virus, he consumed vitamin C, carrots and black seed oil mixed with honey.
In His Words;
“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 black seed 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’ve been able to get the virus out off my system, so will it be for majority of our people. I’ve lost a little bit of weight which I think is good. When you’re 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.”
