Ondo govt reacts to  Akeredolu’s health challenges

CITIZENS COMPASS– ONDO State Government on Tuesday, reacted to the health challenges of its governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.

A statement by Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Richard Olatunde like every other person, Akeredolu had a health challenge but has received treatment and is recuperating speedily.

The spokesperson said his principal is not a superhuman and the immunity his office enjoys does not extend to physical wellness or otherwise.

Olatunde noted that contrary to speculations, the governor though frail, is discharging his official functions and not faced with any life-threatening illness.

The government listed his recent engagements including last week’s Executive Council meeting and Security Council meeting where decisions were taken on the escalated clashes in Ikare-Akoko.

“The Governor, who participated in rigorous campaign activities on the 7th of January, couldn’t have been bedridden as widely speculated.

“Last Friday, Governor Akeredolu still inaugurated a new Refrigerated Van for the use of Meat Dealers in the State. He also received the Melvin Jones Award of the Lions Club International same day.”

Appreciating the outpour of prayers even beyond partisan lines, Olatunde urged all persons of goodwill to ignore unfounded insinuations capable of creating any false sense of needless anxiety.

The statement followed the leaked audio where Akeredolu’s wife alerted that her husband is on a sick bed after eating a “concoction” allegedly from a female aide, Bunmi Ademosun.

Recall that the social media was awash recently when the picture of Akeredolu surfaced during a visit by former Ekiti State governor, Kayode Fayemi.
