Chairman of the South West Governor’s Forum and Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has arrived in the country after a 14-day vacation in Germany and hours after his rumoured death.
His first official assignment was to endorse his wife, Betty’s Senatorial aspiration to contest the Imo East Senatorial election in 2023.
Rumour had it that the governor was sick and eventually passed on in the German hospital.
But 24 hours after the rumour, the governor in a video posted by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde on his Facebook page showed the governor dancing and singing to prove to cynics that he is still alive.
Olatunde wrote on his page that ”Ondo state Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, arrived at the International wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, Nigeria at exactly 10:35pm on Sunday, April 17, 2022.”
Few hours after his arrival in the country, the governor declared his support for his wife’s ambition in a statement he personally signed.
Recall that the state opposition People’s Democratic Party had on Sunday alleged that the governor was using the state fund to sponsor the wife’s Senatorial ambition in Imo state.
But in a subtle response, Akeredolu, in the statement, said he “believed in the mission of the First Lady to emancipate women from the shackles of all forms of oppression.
