Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, the first Governor to recover from Coronavirus, has revealed what he used to fight Coronavirus.

He said I took carrots, black seed oil, honey, and vitamin C as he battled the Coronavirus disease during the isolation period.


The governor, on March 30, announced he had tested positive for Coronavirus and was going into Isolation. On Sunday, April 5, he took to his Twitter handle to announce that he had become negative after a series of tests.



Speaking in an interview with Fresh FM Ibadan on Monday, April 6, Makinde said in boosting his immunity to fight coronavirus; he consumed vitamin C, carrots, and black seed oil mixed with honey.


“My perfect 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 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 the majority of our people. I’ve lost a little bit of weight, which I think is right. When you’re in isolation, the tendency is just to watch television and eat; I was eating amala. B

I was also using the treadmill. It has also been a period to reflect and look at the programs, 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.” he said
