SEE IT: National chairman of Nigeria’s ruling party Adams Oshiomhole hits gym to boost immune system after President’s Chief of Staff died from COVID-19

The National chairman of Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole has hit the gym in an apparent move to boost his immune system against COVID-19, the respiratory disease that killed the chief of staff to the President on Friday.

Abba Kyari, who was sometimes described as the defacto President, usurping the powers of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo many times, died in the commercial city of Lagos on Friday and buried in the capital Abuja on Saturday.

Oshiomhole, in an apparent move to boost his immune system, released a video of himself at the gym in Abuja working out.

In the short clip, he seemed to focus on the trio of biceps, cardio and lower body part. The video seems to reveal, however, that he’s not a regular gym goer as he struggles with basic exercises.

It was not clear whether it was a private or public gym as gyms are known to be ideal places to spread the coronavirus. Virtually all gyms are shut in the United States.

Hundreds of Nigerians have tested positive for the deadly bug but the death toll has remained low.

UN agency has, however, projected that as many as 300,000 people could died from the disease in Africa, as infections skyrocket and death toll continues to rise rapidly.
