[ODUNEWS] January 17 – On Tuesday, the Ondo State Government made a statement regarding the mounting concern over Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s health.
According to the administration, it was forced to address the worries and reassure the populace that “by the grace of God, there is no cause for alarm.”
According to a statement by Richard Olatunde, the governor’s chief press secretary, Akeredolu experienced health issues like everyone else, but he has received treatment and is quickly recovering.
The spokesperson stated that the office’s immunity does not cover mental or physical health and that the principal is not a superhuman.
Olatunde pointed out that, in contrast to rumours, the governor is still carrying out his official duties despite his frailty and is not suffering from a terminal illness.
The government noted his recent commitments, including last week’s Executive Council and Security Council meetings, where decisions on the escalating violence in Ikare-Akoko were made.
“The Governor, who participated in intense campaign activities on January 7th, could not have been bedridden, as commonly thought.”
Governor Akeredolu still unveiled a new refrigeration van for the benefit of the state’s meat traders last Friday.
On the same day, he also received the Lions Club International’s Melvin Jones Award.
” Appreciating the outpouring of prayers across partisan lines, Olatunde advised all people of goodwill to reject baseless rumours that could cause unnecessary tension.
The statement came following a leaked recording in which Akeredolu’s wife stated that her husband is on the mend after consuming a “concoction” purportedly made by a female aide, Bunmi Ademosun.
She accused the Special Adviser on Multilateral and Inter-Governmental Affairs of “sneaking” the local herb into her spouse.
The Ondo First Lady told the SA in an audio clip obtained by the Daily Post to keep away from her husband or face her wrath.
“Her recent meeting to become the state’s deputy governor is what prompted this communication.
Take a look at yourself!
What qualifications do you have to be the deputy governor of Ondo?
“Perhaps, if anything happens to Aketi, Lucky (Aiyedatiwa, the incumbent deputy) takes over. It’s a constitutional thing, but not for you to be scheming.
“I warned Aketi from day one that this woman is evil and not good. and it’s happening. She has nothing good. I’m warning her for the very last time to stay away from my husband.
“I will deal with you mercilessly. You’ll never forget in your life. “”You are a very terrible human being. “”Go away and enjoy your loot,” Betty stated.
