Olatunde further emphasized that Governor Akeredolu's main focus at the moment is his full recovery. Despite the extension of his medical leave, the governor is eager to return to the state soon and continue executing his administration's REDEEMED agenda.

Earlier reports had mentioned that the Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly confirmed the extension of Governor Akeredolu's leave. The All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, also stated that the governor was incapacitated and hospitalized.

The Ondo State First Lady, Mrs. Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, recently shared a photo of her ailing husband on social media to celebrate his 67th birthday. She expressed solidarity and confidence, captioning the photo, "Aketi dey Kampe! Victory for us!"

The Ondo State government has been hopeful about Governor Akeredolu's health condition, assuring residents and natives of the Sunshine state that the governor is in high spirits.
