The executive governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, has reportedly passed away at age 67 due to a long time illness.
According to report gathered by shegzeblog late Governor Akeredolu died of Leukemia (cancer of the blood).
This comes just two weeks after the ailing governor reportedly embarked on a medical trip to Germany, his second in about four months.
Following the report gathered, a family source disclosed on Wednesday, December 27, that Akeredolu died in Lagos.
The news outlet reports that he was managed by State House doctors up to his d£ath because they could not fly him abroad.
“Akeredolu is dead; he died in Lagos. They were looking for dialysis machines to be sent to his secret location in Lagos last week,” the source was quoted as saying.
Recall that the ailing governor returned to Nigeria in September following a three-month medical leave in Germany and only recently proceeded on another one after he was directed by President Bola Tinubu to hand over power to his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.
His deputy, Aiyedatiwa has been standing in as Acting Governor.
