Recounting his battle with the virus during a phone interview with Fresh FM on Tuesday, the governor said he used local solutions to boost his system after an official in charge of the primary healthcare system in the state recommended it to him.

According to him, the local solution includes honey and black seed oil (also known as black caraway, black cumin, kalonji, and black onion seeds). He said:

“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 of 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.”

Governor Makinde also promised the commitment of his administration to ensuring that no citizen of the state dies from contracting the coronavirus.
