Ondo State government, yesterday, described a report credited to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, on the health of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu as wicked, mischievous and insensitive.

A national newspaper quoted the APC chairman to have said that Akeredolu was incapacitated and hospitalised abroad.

Adamu was reported to have made the remarks at a meeting between the national leadership of the party and APC state chairmen in Abuja on Monday.

It will be recalled that Akeredolu, on Monday, wrote to Ondo State House of Assembly, requesting an extension of his medical leave.

This came as the acting governor, Mr Lucky Ayedatiwa, has said that the governor is in “high spirit, recuperating and expected back in the office to continue with his laudable service to the state, as soon as he is certified medically fit by his doctors.”

Reacting to the media report credited to the APC chairman, the Information and Orientation Commissioner in Ondo State, Bamidele Ademola-Olateju, said that the chairman was quoted out of context.

Ademola-Olateju, in the statement, explained that at no time did the Chairman mention that the Governor was in a state of “extreme incapacity.”

The statement reads: “The attention of the Ondo State government has been drawn to a report, credited to the Chairman of the APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu.
