Acting Governor of Ondo State Lucky Aiyedatiwa claims to be in regular contact with Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and claims that he is recuperating in a hospital abroad.
This information was made public on Tuesday in Akure by Aiyedatiwa in response to some media reports that he described as being written by “faceless writers to fan the ember of disunity in the state.”
The acting governor pleaded with the population to ignore the tragic lies and treachery as the antics of desperate political gladiators from rival political parties.
”The governor appreciates your prayers and good wishes for himself and the State, across board. He is in high spirit, recuperating and being expected back in office to continue with his laudable service to the State, as soon as he is certified medically fit by his Doctors.
“I am in touch with him, the latest being on Sunday when he expressed appreciation to me and other State Executive Council Members for holding the fort while he is away.
“I like to also join the governor to express our profound appreciation to you all for your unending show of love, solidarity.”
We should remain in this attitude of prayer and solidarity for the good of ourselves, the governor and the State at large” the statement read in parts.
