Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, the wife of the governor of Ondo, has dispelled death rumors by sharing a photograph of her husband in a medical facility.
The picture, posted on Friday on her social media handles, shows the governor sitting on a motorable chair with his wife standing beside him. The background of the picture suggests that it was taken in a medical facility.
“Aketi dey kampe!. Victory for us!” Betty captioned the picture.
Coincidentally, today is the 67th birthday of the Ondo governor, who was born on July 21, 1956.
Earlier, Akeredolu posted a picture on his Twitter handle to celebrate his 67th birthday.
“Which of the Favour of the Lord can I deny? Chapter 67. To God be the Laud, Honour and Glory!!!” the Ondo governor tweeted.
Over the past few weeks, the health status of Akeredolu has been making the headlines.
Akeredolu had embarked on a 21-day leave on June 7 and was expected to return on July 6.
The governor had directed Lucky Aiyedatiwa, his deputy, to act in his stead. However, Akeredolu wrote to the state house of assembly, extending his medical leave when he did not resume work at the initial date of resumption.
Meanwhile, Abdullahi Adamu, the former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), stirred another controversy when he said Akeredolu was hospitalised and in a state of “extreme incapacity”.
The Ondo government had countered Adamu and assured residents of the state that the governor will resume duties soon.
