The online report published on the blog called lekanoladeinde which listed Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom among 26 other Nigerian Governors who have refused to go into self insolation is misleading.  
In a disclaimer statement made available to CAPITAL POST on Thursday by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr. Terver Akase, he said, Governor Samuel Ortom fully understands the need to adhere to the directive by medical experts on social distancing among other preventive measures against COVID-19.
He became one of the first Governors in the country to set up an action committee on Coronavirus and has released funds to enable the committee take quick steps to prevent the disease from entering the state. 
It is important to also state that Governor Ortom is healthy. He has neither traveled out of the state in the last one month nor had contact with anyone suspected to have contracted coronavirus. If there was any reason for him to go into self isolation, he would since have done so.  
In the last few days, Governor Ortom has taken proactive measures against COVID-19 such as establishment of isolation centres in the three zones of the state and intensified awareness on the danger posed by the virus.
