Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu Returns From Medical Leave
Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has returned to Nigeria after being on medical leave in Germany for three months. He arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja and has since been flown to Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State. It is reported that some members of the Ondo government's cabinet have relocated to Ibadan. Governor Akeredolu's wife, Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, confirmed his return with a social media post. This marks the governor's first public statement since going on leave, and it is expected that he will soon resume his duties in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has arrived back in Nigeria after spending three months on medical leave in Germany. The governor's return was confirmed by his wife, Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, who shared a picture of him on board an aircraft, captioned 'Homebound.'

Sources indicate that Governor Akeredolu landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja and was immediately flown to Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State. It appears that some members of the Ondo government's cabinet have relocated to Ibadan, possibly in anticipation of the governor's return.

Richard Olatunde, the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, also issued a congratulatory message on the same day, extending his greetings to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his deputy, Kashim Shettima, on their victory at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT). This statement marked Olatunde's first official communication on behalf of Governor Akeredolu since the governor went on medical leave in June 2023. Power had been transmitted to the deputy governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, through the state House of Assembly.

After his initial medical leave, Governor Akeredolu applied for an extension on July 10, 2023, stating that he had sought medical attention in Germany and was recuperating. Now that he has returned, it is expected that the governor will spend some time in Ibadan before proceeding to Akure, the Ondo State capital, where he will resume his official duties.

"I'm also aware that some members of the state Exco might likely visit him there to welcome him back to the state," an undisclosed source shared.

Governor Akeredolu's return is a positive development for the people of Ondo State, as it signifies his improved health condition and readiness to resume his responsibilities as the elected leader of the state.

Throughout his absence, Deputy Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa has been overseeing the affairs of the state, ensuring continuity and stability. With the governor's return, the government and its various departments can now work in full swing, implementing policies and initiatives that will benefit the people of Ondo State.

We wish Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu a smooth transition back into office and hope for his continued good health as he carries out his duties in service to the people of Ondo State.
