Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, on Friday, released his former residence, the Presidential Hilltop in Abeokuta, Ogun, to be used as isolation centre for victims of COVID-19.

A statement issued by Mr Kehinde Akinyemi, the Special Assistant (Media) to Obasanjo, said the 32-room facility had been handed over to the Ogun government for immediate take over.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Obasanjo, who moved out of the building in November 2017, presently resides in the Penthouse at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) in Abeokuta.

“The facility located off the Presidential Boulevard, Oke-Sari in the state capital, has each of the 32 rooms en suite, with a standby generator,” he said.

Akinyemi said that the former president expressed concern over the pandemic and called on people in positions to help to offer assistance in containing the spread of the deadly virus. (NAN)
