Ondo Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has said there was no cause for alarm over the state of his health, stating he was recuperating speedily.

Akeredolu said he had some health challenges just like every other mortal but he had received treatment and recovering speedily.

The Governor stated that he was not a superhuman and the immunity his office enjoyed does not extend to physical wellness or otherwise. He said his health issue was not an unusual one. Therefore he insisted that he is discharging his official functions.

Through  a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, the Governor expressed his view.

According to him: “Mr. Governor is not faced with any life-threatening illness that would have encouraged any alleged conspiracy in his administration.

‘’He, in fact, held Executive Council meeting with the Exco members till 4pm on Wednesday, 11th January, 2023 after the 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 (APC) 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 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
