Akeredolu breaks silence over alleged failing health
Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has said there is no cause for alarm over his health.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Betty, the Ondo State First Lady, had in a leaked audio attacked Bunmi Ademosu, Special Adviser on Public and Inter-Governmental Relations to Governor, to stop giving her husband concoction to drink.
Sources in Ondo said the governor has been battling an undisclosed ailment which is very serious.
But in a statement on Tuesday through his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Richard Olatunde, the governor allayed fears over his health, even though he admitted that he had some health challenges — just like every other mortal but he had received treatment and recovering speedily.
“Mr. Governor is not faced with any life-threatening illness that would have encouraged any alleged conspiracy in his administration.
“While we appreciate the growing concerns about his wellbeing and indeed, appreciate the outpour of prayers even beyond partisan lines, we urge all persons of goodwill to ignore unfounded insinuations capable of creating any false sense of needless anxiety.
“The Governor will continue to discharge his official duties to the good people of Ondo State in line with the REDEEMED Agenda of his administration while he finds quality time to rest for renewed vigour and strength just like any man in his situation,” the statement partly reads.
