Ondo govt: Akeredolu on vacation, not hospitalised

Akeredolu warns parties against fielding northern presidential candidates


Ondo State Government on Thursday debunked claims that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu had been hospitalised in Germany after falling ill.

Reports (not Metrostarng) had said that Akeredolu fell ill after the All Progressives Congress National convention in Abuja on March 26 and was flown to Germany for medical attention.

However, the Commissioner for Information, Hon. Donald Ojogo, told Metrostarng in an SMS that the governor proceeded on vacation after missing it twice.

“He is not ill. He is on his annual vacation, postponed twice last year due to pressure of work. He attended the Governors Fprum Dubai Business Exhibition before proceeding to Germany.

Such slant of ‘taking ill and being flown abroad’ is a warped, twisted one. Governor Akeredolu handed over to his Deputy who is Acting Governor. Akeredolu resumes on the 25th of this month.”
