The Majority Leader of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. SOB Agunbiade has formally announced his ‘discharge’ from the 14-days mandatory quarantine, imposed on him and other Nigerians recently evacuated from the U.A.E by the federal government.

The compulsory quarantine period was to ascertain their Covid-19 status before they are allowed full re-integration to their families and the society at large.

Agunbiade made this announcement through a public statement, made available to Ikorodu Oga Radio.

In the statement, he disclosed that, he was fully back and ready to resume his full legislative and representative duties which he has hitherto performed skeletally.

‘the 14 day mandatory quarantine recommended and enforced by the NCDC on we, the United Arab Emirates returnees, that came into the country on 6th May 2020, ended on Thursday 21st May . I have since returned home to re-unite with my family after my wife and I have again tested negative to the pandemic virus and got certified by the Federal Ministry of health as free of the deadly virus’.

The recent certification is a confirmation of the earlier certification by the Dubai Health Authority sequel to covid 19 test before Agunbiade and other UAE evacuees boarded the return flight to Lagos, Nigeria.

Reflecting on his experience during the quarantine, he noted that the period was, ‘a period of sober experience that assisted in building confidence needed to mingle freely with one’s family and also encourages acceptability to one’s home and community without any hesitation’, he said.

Hon. Agunbiade also prayed that God heals our land and all those currently suffering from the affliction of the virus and all those already forced into early graves to receive the mercies of the high heavens.

He equally reiterated that, with what his personal experience has taken him through, he can affirm that *the Covid 19 virulence is* real and all Nigerians and indeed Lagosians must try separately and severely to keep safe by obeying all the precautions set out by NCDC.

Hon. Agunbiade also used the medium to congratulate all Muslim faithfuls for the opportunity of surviving the month and prayed that blessings of the holy month attend to all their prayers and sacrifices in the form of fasting.

‘Let us continue to live by the lessons of Ramadan by practising the acts of : giving , tolerance , forgiving and love which are essential elements of good neighbourliness’, he concluded.

He also expressed appreciations to all individuals and groups that expressed their concerns and affections through the social media and through several phone calls when he returned to the country after his medical trip and throughout the highly restrictive quarantine period.
