The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, has returned to the state after spending five weeks outside the state over alleged ill health.
Governor Akeredolu returned to the state on Friday through a chartered flight with registration number N664AC at exactly 5:36 p.m.
The absence of the Ondo State Governor stirred reports that he away from the office due to his health status.
The rumours were, however, quenched by the State Commissioner for Information, Donald Ojogo, after PDP called for a probe into his absence.
Governor Akeredolu while speaking with newsmen stated that he sought medical attention but not as reported by the opposition.
“Yes, I needed to seek medical attention. It was nothing so serious as overblown because it is routine. But on my return, I needed to take some time off based on advice. It wasn’t as serious as people blew it.”
“But basically, my stay back in Abuja was indeed not a serious period to even rest because I had to attend to a lot of issues that will move the state forward.”
“I received in audience a World-class Medical Foundation, Medicus International, from Germany as I presided over the signing of the MoU for them to build a World-class Medical city in Akure.”
“You are aware that I attended the Governors’ Forum meeting, as well as the National Economic Council meeting and several others.”
“Of particular note was the meeting I held with the World Bank that will bring in the capital of about $19 million for the development of the state.”
“As you can see, I’m back fresher and stronger to continue the work the good people of the state-mandated me to do.”
