Ondo Civil Servant Suspended Due to Rumors of Akeredolu’s Death

The state administration of Ondo has suspended a public servant for allegedly circulating false information concerning Rotimi Akeredolu’s death.

“The disciplinary measure was predicated on the death rumors being circulated about the Governor,” Head of Service, Pastor John Adeyemo, who did not reveal the civil servant’s identity, said in Akure.

The civil official in question has been suspended, according to Adeyemo, and his name has been given to the Civil Service Commission for proper punishment.

“The officer shared the phony news on his Facebook account,” he said, “and such terrible behavior would not be tolerated in government.”

“Severe punishments against purveyors of such fake news to serve as a deterrence to others, such fake news generates difficulties in society,” the Head of Service suggested.

Adeyemo expressed his delight that the governor had returned to the country in good health, saying that “God has embarrassed the rumour mongers and their sponsors.”

“I called Mr Governor the day before the rumor broke, and we talked for a while.” So, when I heard the phony news, I was upset and wondered who was spreading this horrible rumour, but I knew Mr Governor was still alive and well. As a result, I never believed it.

On April 1, 2022, governor Akeredolu began a two-week holiday as part of his annual vacation.

In an acting role, he passed over control to his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

However, it was rumored that the Governor had died in a German hospital while he was overseas.

Meanwhile, the governor, speaking upon his arrival in the state, branded the rumor as “wicked” and “politically motivated.”

Akeredolu expressed gratitude to the people of the state, noting that he is still alive and will return to work on Monday next week.

“On March 27, 2022, I fled the beaches of this country. I was there with my party, physically present, until the early hours of March 27th, 2022.

“I was in Abuja for the APC convention on the 26th, and everyone saw me there.” I even sat with Ondo State delegates.

” I only left them when I had to greet representatives from the South West and other parts of the country. And it was a successful trip for us in Ondo State, as well as the rest of the South West.

“And then the next day, I flew to Dubai for the annual investment gathering, which was called the Dubai Annual Meeting, and we were all there.”

“It was not a pleasant vacation; my vacation started on the first day, but it was a working visit to Dubai from March 27th, 2022, and I was still working, so my first 14 days did not begin until April 1st, 2022.”

“I was in Dubai working on the State,” Akeredolu stated. About 14 states took part, and each had its own booth, where I showcased what we have in Ondo State, including our bitumen and mineral resources. I went to various forums to discuss and project Ondo State’s image.”
