The Acting governor of Ondo, Mr Lucky Aiyedatiwa has said his boss, Governor Oluwaritimi Akeredolu who has been away from the state for medical treatment is in high spirit and recuperating well.
Aiyedatiwa who said he is constant touch with Akeredolu assured that the Governor is expected back in office to continue with his laudable service to the State, as soon as he is certified medically fit by his Doctors.
“The governor appreciates your prayers and good wishes for himself and the State, across board. He is in high spirit, recuperating and being expected back in office to continue with his laudable service to the State, as soon as he is certified medically fit by his Doctors,” Aiyedatiwa said in a statement on Tuesday in Akure,
The Acting Governor issued the statement in reaction to some media reports he attributed to: ‘faceless writers to fan ember of unity in the state”
He urged the general public, to as usual, ignore the unfortunate lies and subterfuge as the antics of desperate political gladiators across political divides.
“You are aware of the message of the governor to the people of Ondo State in which he thanked the people and other critical stakeholders for their support and loyalty.
“I am in touch with him, the latest being on Sunday when he expressed appreciation to me and other State Executive Council Members for holding the fort while he is away.
“I like to also join the governor to express our profound appreciation to you all for your unending show of love, solidarit.
”We should remain in this attitude of prayer and solidarity for the good of ourselves, the governor and the State at large” the statement read in parts.
Aiyedatiwa urged the general public to ignore the unfortunate lies and antics of desperate political gladiators across political divides,assuring that it would not allow it to derail the focus and developmental policies of the current administration of Akeredolu.
The acting governor said the tactics of the faceless writers and agents of provocateurs were intended to fan embers of discord, tarnish the hard earned reputations of individuals in government circles and distract Government attention foe selfish politic gains.
”We crave for more cooperation and support from the good people of the State as well as ask for more restraints and circumspections on the part of groups and individuals whose actions and unwarranted vituperations in social circles and the media are capable of robbing off negatively on the image of the State.
“We therefore assure the people of Ondo state that there is no gap in governance. The government of Ondo State is on course, construction works are going on across the state and other official activities are also running well in line with standard practices.
“The security and welfare of the people being the primary constitutional mandate of government is enjoying top priority.
“The state government will not at any time renege on this important obligation to the people. We urge you all to continue to be law-abiding, peaceful and endeavour to pursue your legitimate businesses and activities unhindered,” the statement added.
