My Illness Not Life-Threatening – Akeredolu

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has reacted to rumours that he is battling a life-threatening illness.

The governor in a statement signed by his CPS on Tuesday, said that he had been under the weather for a while but he is recuperating.

He added that his state of health has not in any way affected his official duties as the governor of the state.

The governor’s health became a source of concern after an audio alleged to be from his wife, Betty, gave a hint about his condition.

The governor, in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olabode, stated that he has been engaged in rigorous activities since last week and urged the people to dismiss the rumours that he is not active.

He added that the Governor was actively present during the presidential rally of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state on January 7, as well as the activities of the Armed Forces Remembrance Day.

The statament reads: “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.”
