Ondo state government has asked Nigerians to ignore the rumour of the demise of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
The state information and Orientation Commissioner, Bamidele Ademola-Olateju, in a statement in Akure, made the clarification.
The statement reads “We have been inundated with calls and messages concerning the state of health of the Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, CON.
“We had chosen to ignore this wicked fabrication until it appeared that certain persons seek to draw political mileage from the disinformation.
“Though the Governor has been indisposed, he has been attending to state matters and delegating functions to functionaries of the Government, when necessary.
“We enjoin the members of the public to ignore the rumour. Aketi is very much alive.
