The Chairman of APC in Ondo State, Mr. Ade Adetimehin has debunked the report where the National Chairman of the party was quoted that the Ondo State governor is “extreme incapacitated”.
The chairman in a statement said the report was “a tinge of the usual mischievous, wicked and insensitive reportage, sponsored by desperate politicians.”
“The National Chairman was indeed excited at the reports on the rate of recovery of the Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and urged all those present at the meeting to pray for his quick return.”
He advised members of the public to ignore the news as the contents therein exist in the realm of the imagination of workers of iniquity.
“The attention of Ondo State government has been drawn to a report, credited to the Chairman of the APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, in the 11th July, 2023. The headline, “Akeredolu in state of extreme incapacity, hospitalised”, bore a tinge of the usual mischievous, wicked and insensitive reportage, sponsored by desperate politicians.
“Adetimehin, who attended the meeting, debunked the report as untrue and totally disconnected from the statement of the Chairman at the event.
It, therefore, smacks of mischief and unabashed abandonment of professional ethics for a reporter to present this gross misrepresentation, a mischievous twist, as news. At no time did the Chairman mention that the Governor was in a state of “extreme incapacity”. He is, evidently, not in any critical state that should warrant this clearly reprehensible conduct as he still sent a post to the Executive Council Committee platform yesterday.
“Members of the public are advised to ignore this news as the contents therein exist in the realm of the imagination of workers of iniquity.
“Mr. Governor is NOT incapacitated. He will return to his duty as soon as the doctors certify him fully fit to do so, the statement said.
