I’m Not Going to Germany for Another Treatment- Gov Akeredolu
The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu has denied reports that he is preparing to return to Germany for another round of medical treatment.
The governor who is currently embroiled in fracas with his deputy had recently spent five weeks abroad where he had gone for medical treatment for an undisclosed ailment.
In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, the Ondo helmsman attributed the rumour of a return medical trip to “evil politicians” who were bent on destabilizing the state.
The statement reads in part:
“The story making the rounds is baseless, unfounded, and only a figment of the imagination of evil-minded politicians.
“For us, we are committed to addressing the genuine concerns of the people of the State. This is why development is prioritised under the Akeredolu administration.
“Governance is not about showbiz, where the governor embarks on fashion parades at the market square to announce his presence in the State.
“We understand the importance of development as the major driver of a peaceful, thriving, and egalitarian society.
“Governor Akeredolu’s administration has consistently demonstrated its dedication to the State’s progress.
“Recently, he approved the recruitment of medical professionals and healthcare workers as a demonstration of our commitment to enhancing the State’s healthcare system.”
