The Ondo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to disclosed his true health status.
Concise News understands that the governor has not returned to the country following the expiration of his annual vacation leave, which ended on October 4, 2019.
The opposition party in a statement issued on Friday by its spokesman, Zadok Akintoye, said the people of the state deserve to know if the governor can still carry out his constitutionally required functions without impediment.
The PDP said the Ondo House of Assembly should ensure that the process of governance is not impeded by the governors’ reported ill health.
The statement read: “If true, we express our concern on the state of health of the governor and do wish him quick and perfect recovery.
“Our party also wishes to request that the true status of the health of the Governor be made known to the public as soon as possible and that if he is incapacitated in performing his duties, the Ondo House of Assembly should ensure that the process of governance is not impeded by the Governors’ ill health.
“The import of the absence of Mr. Governor and/or his Deputy at the meeting of Niger Delta Governors with the President on Thursday, underlines our concern; as Ondo state (being one of the Niger Delta states and a major stakeholder in the happenings at the NDDC) was not adequately represented in the discussions.
“Once again, our prayers goes to the Governor and we wish him perfect recovery (if this allegation is true).
“We enjoin all citizens to remain calm as we await an official response on the state of health of the Governor,” the statement read.
