Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has debunked rumours making rounds that he is battling a life-threatening illness, the governor on Tuesday disclosed that he had been under the weather for a while.
The governor in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olabode, stated that he has since last week been involved in rigorous activities, hence the people should dismiss the rumour of insinuations that he is not active.
“Governor Akeredolu, just like every other mere mortal has had some health challenges for which he has since received treatment and recuperated speedily. Since the Governor is not a superhuman and the immunity his office enjoys does not extend to physical wellness or otherwise, the health issue is therefore not an unusual one.
“However, contrary to speculations and insinuations making the round, the Governor though frail, is discharging his official functions.
“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.”
