APC’s National Secretary, Sen. Iyiola Omisore, assures Nigerians that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu will soon return to Ondo State to resume his duties, dismissing concerns about his health.
Omisore, along with other national leaders, visited the state to show solidarity and urged people to pray for the governor’s well-being after he has rested.
During the visit, Omisore met with Acting Governor Hon. Lucky Ayedatiwa, State Chairman Engr. Ade Adetimehin, and various government officials. He clarified that the recent comments made by the National Chairman, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, were misinterpreted by some media outlets, emphasizing that the chairman never stated that the governor was incapacitated.
The national secretary insisted that at no time did the National Chairman say the governor was incapacitated.
Omisore lamented that some sections of the press only opted to be mischievous and reported: “what they feel makes news.”
The visit, he explained, was meant to dispel the misapprehension of the sincere and noble statement, and put the record straight. According to him, “Mr Chairman only urged people to pray for the quick recovery of your governor; not on account of being incapacitated. Our visit, therefore, is to reinforce the position of the national secretariat that we only prayed for the quick recovery of Arakunrin Akeredolu SAN, and not otherwise,” Omisore stressed.
