I’ll live to finish my tenure – Akeredolu
Following his return to the country after almost three months of medical treatment in Germany, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State stated emphatically on Friday that he will be alive to complete his tenure in 2025.
Akeredolu stated this when he met with key stakeholders from Ondo State in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State.
While saluting members of his cabinet for the prayers and the good work they had carried out while he was away, the governor revealed that he has fully returned and will immediately resume duties.
“God has done what the majority of our people wanted. The majority of our people here knelt down and prayed for our return, and we have returned.
“I came back yesterday, and as you know, it was a long journey. I decided that I must meet with you today. God has answered our prayers, and we give Him all the glory. I can assure you that our return is to the glory of God and the prayers of all of you here and those who wished us well.
“I will be alive to complete my full tenure in office. I want to tell you that I am back, and I will resume work immediately. This is my letter of resumption,” he said.
GISTS VILLA recalls that the governor undertook a trip to Germany for medical treatment in June, which required him to be absent from the state.
During his absence, he officially delegated the responsibilities of governing the state to his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, by transferring power to him in an acting capacity through a letter communicated to the Ondo State House of Assembly.
