Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde last Monday revealed that he fought coronavirus with carrots, vitamin C and black seed oil with honey while in isolation.
The governor revealed this in Ibadan in a telephone interview with an FM radio station.
He had last week announced that he was tested positive for the disease and went into isolation.
But two days ago, he announced that he had become negative after series of tests.
The governor said he only made efforts to boost his immunity and used his time in isolation to regularly exercise on the treadmill.
“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.”
