Daily Metro News NG
The main opposition party in Ondo state, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has challenged the Ondo state Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, CON, to come out of his hiding place in the governance of the state and inform the citizens the true state of his health.
This was contained in a press statement issued by Mr Kennedy Peretei, the State Publicity Secretary of PDP in Ondo State, Friday morning. The statement claimed that the state Governor has not been seeing anywhere around the state since his return from his 3 months medical leave.
Also, the main opposition party said the Governor has ordered an upgrade of his Ibadan residence to include a replica of Executive Council Chambers, from where he intends to hold Exco meetings. His return they say was against the advice of his doctors.
Below is the press statement unedited:

WHERE IS GOVERNOR AKEREDOLU?
The Governor of Ondo State, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN is still nowhere to be found, eight days since he claimed he has resumed duties as Governor after his three months medical leave in Germany.
The Governor was reported to have signed the creation of 33 LCDAs bill into law, sacked the media aides of Deputy Governor Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa all from hiding.
Last week, the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Ondo State Chapter challenged the rationale for Akeredolu calling for a meeting in his Ibadan residence, instead of Ondo State where he was elected to govern. Up till this moment, the Governor has not been seen anywhere near Ondo State.
Akeredolu is beginning to fuel media speculations that, against the advice of his doctors he was hurriedly brought into Nigeria to foil an impeachment process. He also ordered an upgrade of his Ibadan residence to include a replica of Executive Council Chambers, from where he intends to hold Exco meetings. Does Akeredolu want to make Ibadan the capital of Ondo State? What is the hurry to resume all about, if he cannot come to Ondo State? Would it not have made more sense if he was still attending to his health abroad? Why did he say he has resumed when indeed he has not?
Our party wishes to advise Akeredolu to come to Ondo State to complete his tenure. But if he does not feel fit enough to resume, he can proceed on another medical leave instead of trying to pull wool over our eyes in Ondo State.
Kennedy Ikantu Peretei.
State Publicity Secretary, PDP, Ondo State.
