Ondo State Deputy Governor, His Excellency Agboola Ajayi receives the news that the Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN tests positive for the Coronavirus with great empathy and compassion. He is reliefed by the disclosure of Mr Governor that he’s asymptomatic and feeling good in the self isolation.

The Deputy Governor urges all the good people of Ondo State to pray for Mr Governor’s quickest recovery and general wellbeing. Health is not something to play politics with and as such craves the cooperation of all at this period.

It’s our fervent prayer that the Governor will overcome this to continue to pilot the affairs of the State for the progress and prosperity of all.
