Ondo Governor Rotimi Akeredolu is alive, the State has declared.
It dismissed the death rumour of the Governor, stating Akeredolu is “very much alive.”
To apparently respond to the rumour, a video was released showing the Governor watching the FA Cup finals between Manchester United and Manchester City.
Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Bamidele Ademola-Olateju, said they discovered that certain persons sought to draw political mileage from the disinformation.
She said the Governor has been attending to state matters and delegating functions to functionaries of the Government, when necessary.
“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.
“We enjoin the members of the public to ignore the rumour. Aketi is very much alive.”
