There Is No Cause For Alarm About Akeredolu’s Health -Aide

by Echezona obinna

The Ondo State Government has stated that there is no reason to be concerned about Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN’s health.

According to the state government, the governor had some non-life threatening health issues and had since undergone treatment and was recuperating while still doing his duties.

This was revealed in a statement issued by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olabode, on Tuesday.

“We have witnessed growing concern about the health of Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, CON,” the statement said. The good people of the state, and by extension, other friends and well-wishers, have continued to express concern over the governor’s health, particularly since yesterday.

“We are constrained to respond to these concerns and assure our people that by the grace of God, there is no cause for alarm on the governor’s state of health.


“Governor Akeredolu, just like every other mere mortal, has had some health challenges for which he has since received treatment and recuperating 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.

“Mr Governor is not faced with any life-threatening illness that would have encouraged any alleged conspiracy in his administration. He, in fact, held an executive council meeting with the Exco members till 4pm on Wednesday, 11th January 2023 after a security council meeting where far-reaching decisions were taken on the escalated clashes in Ikare-Akoko.”

“On January 7, 2023, Governor Akeredolu led his brother governors in the Southwest and other party bigwigs to receive the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Akure for the state presidential campaign rally. On January 8, 2023, he was at The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Jesus House Cathedral, Region 22 Headquarters, Oke-Ijebu, Akure, for the holy service commemorating the 2023 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration.

“For emphasis, the governor, who participated in rigorous campaign activities on the 7th of January, couldn’t have been bedridden as widely speculated. Moreso, 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 the same day.

“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 added.
