Governor Clarifies Status Amid Social Media Buzz

In an effort to quell circulating rumors, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has officially addressed the public regarding his current health status and return plans. Contrary to social media speculation, the governor has confirmed that he is still in Germany, where he is recuperating from his medical leave.

Through his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, Akeredolu released a statement emphasizing his dedication to a complete recovery and a subsequent return to his duties in the state. Addressing the eager citizens of Ondo State, supporters, and well-wishers both within and outside the country, Akeredolu assured them that his focus is solely on his health at this moment.

The clarification follows the emergence of a short video clip over the weekend, which depicted the governor disembarking from a helicopter. This video sparked widespread speculation that Akeredolu had already returned from his medical leave. However, the statement refutes this assumption, shedding light on the true context of the video.

The statement reads: “Our attention has been drawn to a recent video circulating on social media, suggesting the return of Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, from his medical vacation. While we acknowledge the eagerness of the people of the state, as well as supporters and well-wishers from both within and outside the country, to have the governor back, we want to clarify that Governor Akeredolu is currently in Germany focusing on his full recovery.”

Acknowledging the outpouring of support and concern from the citizens of Ondo State, Akeredolu expressed his deep appreciation for their unwavering prayers and encouragement. He highlighted how their genuine empathy and compassion have played a pivotal role in aiding his ongoing recovery journey.

The governor’s commitment to his administration’s development agenda remains unwavering. The statement underscores that he is poised to return to the state in the near future to continue his efforts in providing impactful governance and executing positive and lasting developmental initiatives.

The clarification extends to the context of the video that fueled the speculation. The statement clarifies that the footage in question was captured during the governor’s campaign tour in preparation for the last presidential and National Assembly elections, underscoring the need to differentiate between campaign-related activities and his current health status.

Governor Akeredolu is quoted as saying: “Governor Akeredolu is eagerly looking forward to reuniting with the people of the state. He is deeply moved by the love and support, and he can’t wait to continue working towards a brighter future for Ondo State.”

As citizens await the governor’s return, the statement serves to alleviate any confusion surrounding his health status and reaffirms his commitment to his responsibilities as the leader of Ondo State. The governor’s dedication to serving the people and fostering development remains steadfast, even as he continues his recovery journey abroad.
