The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ondo State, has berated the opposition parties for allegedly taking advantage of the ill-health of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN.
The APC in a statement by its Director, Media & Publicity, Steve Otaloro, said although Governor Akeredolu has been battling health issues lately, it is not too serious to prevent him from resuming his official position, as Governor of Ondo State.
“It is pertinent to note that his health issue is not the too serious type that will prevent him from resuming his official position as Governor of Ondo State.
“Despite this, some individuals and groups have taken it upon themselves to spread false news and rumors about his death. It is disheartening to see that some people would wish death upon a fellow human being. Such actions are unfair and should be condemned by all well-meaning individuals.”
According to the statement, the oppositions have also been quick to malign the Governor’s family, accusing them of not doing enough to take care of the Governor’s illness. Such accusations are falsely disrespectful, flippant and callous.
Reacting to the development, APC State Chairman, Engr. Ade Adetimehin, who is not happy with the rumors being peddle around the health of Arakunrin Akeredolu, SAN, appealed for support and prayers for the governor and family.
“What Arakunrin Akeredolu and the family requires at this period is our support and prayers for the full recovery of their family patriarch. Arabinrin Betty Akeredolu and her children have been doing their best in taking care of Governor Akeredolu.
“We must continue to pray for the Governor’s recovery and stand by the family in these difficult times. He is a good man who loves the downtrodden and deserves all the support and prayers for a full recovery from his illness.
