APC Seeks Prayers For Akeredolu’s Health, Slams Opposition Over ‘Rumours’

The Ondo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has criticised the opposition over purported attacks on the family of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu amid his ongoing health challenges.

 

The party’s Director of Media and Publicity, Steve Otaloro, in a statement made available to Channels Television on Monday, argued that the opposition had accused the governor’s family of not doing enough to take care of his illness — details of which have not been made public.

 

“Such accusations are falsely disrespectful, flippant and callous,” Otaloro said.

 

He accused some individuals and groups of spreading “false news and rumours” about the governor’s 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,” he added.

 

The party spokesman described it as pertinent that Akeredolu’s ailment “is not the too serious type that will prevent him from resuming his official position as Governor of Ondo State.”

 

Also commenting, the APC chairman in Ondo State, Ade Adetimehin, reportedly appealed for support and prayer for the governor and his family.

 

Earlier this month, the governor embarked on a medical leave overseas, handing over the reins of office to his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

 

The Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly Olamide Oladiji, on June 13,  confirmed the receipt of a letter from the governor indicating his departure for treatment.

APC Berates Opposition For Taking Advantage Of Akeredolu’s Health

 

The Governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has been battling health issues lately. 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.

 

The opposition has 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.

 

Engr. Ade Adetimehin, APC chairman in Ondo State who is not happy with rumors being peddle around the health of Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN, appealed for support and prayer 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.
