According to an article from Punch Newspaper, the Chief Press Secretary to Ondo State Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, has reassured the people of the state that there is no cause for alarm regarding the Governor’s health. The statement confirms that the Governor had some health challenges but has received treatment and is recovering quickly. The statement does not address a viral voice note from the Governor’s wife, Betty, where she warned one of the Governor’s female aides to stay away from her husband and stop supplying him with concoctions.
The statement also explains that just like any other human being, the Governor is not immune to health challenges and that the health issue is not unusual. However, it also emphasizes that the Governor is not facing any life-threatening illness and that he is still able to discharge his official functions.
The statement concludes by acknowledging the growing concerns about the Governor’s wellbeing and encourages all persons of goodwill to ignore unfounded insinuations that may create a false sense of unnecessary anxiety. It urges people to pray for the Governor’s recovery and to trust that he is taking all necessary steps to ensure his health.
