Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, CON, who is currently on his annual leave, has clarified why he will no longer resume on Wednesday, April 26, 2023 as earlier scheduled and announced.
The Governor, according to a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Olabode Richard Olatunde, said the extension is due to the 2-day public holidays observed in celebration of the Eid-el-fitri, which marked the end of Ramadan.
The statement reads; “Consequently, Mr Governor will now resume from the first installment of his 2023 annual leave on Monday, May 1, 2023.
“In clear terms, the 2-day public holidays are added to his annual leave calendar, thus extending the leave by two days.
“In the meantime, the Deputy Governor, Hon. Lucky Aiyedatiwa will continue to perform the duties of the office of the Governor in acting capacity.
“Governor Akeredolu is upbeat about his resumption and can not wait to continue to discharge his duties to the people of the state in line with the REDEEMED agenda of his administration.
“The Governor is rejuvenated and imbued with inexorable desire to sustain the tempo of development in the state.”
