COVID-19: Kekemeke, Oke, PDP wish Akeredolu quick Recovery


The Campaign Organization of Hon. D. I. Kekemeke

Message of Solidarity with our Governor

We have just received with shock the disclosure by His Excellency Governor Rotimi Akeredolu that he had tested positive for the coronavirus disease. We thank God for the discovery at the assymptomatic stage. We must commend our Governor for this disclosure and for his decision to self-isolate immediately.

This is fair, responsible and Godly. By going into self-isolation, he has demonstrated concern and care for the health and welfare of those around him and those who will necessarily come into contact with him by virtue of his high office.

We pray for his quick recovery and urge all the people of this State and beyond to begin to offer special prayers for him. May God speak His healing words into his life.

The Chairman of our Movement, Hon. Isaacs Kekemeke, hereby extends to the Governor the assurances of his highest regards and best wishes.

Hon. Demola Ijabiyi
Chairman Strategic Mobilization and Communication Committee


I, Chief Olusola Oke, SAN just listened to the official broadcast of governor Rotimi Akeredolu where he, the governor, broke the news that he tested positive to COVOD-19 Pandemic.

The news from the official briefing came as a rude shock to me, my family and the entire member of my campaign organisation.

We are however confident in the medical explanations that the governor was not symptomatic and in the final analysis it only suggested a home management isolation treatment for the governor.

While we pray and will continue to pray for the governor and wish him soonest recovery, we enjoin all the citizen of Ondo state to obey all the precautionary measures handed down by medical experts and NCDC.

It is my belief that in compliance with the precautionary procedures, together we can stamp out this dreaded pandemic from our state and Nigeria.

Once again, I, on behalf of my family and the entire Olusola Oke Campaign Organistaion are hopeful in prayer and belief that all will be well, soonest.

Chief Olusola Oke, SAN.



It is with deep concern that we receive the news of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu SAN testing positive to the highly infectious Covid19 virus. While we are a bit glad that the Governor is at the moment asymptomatic, we are however concerned about the possibility of identifying, isolating and testing those who may have been exposed to His Excellency particularly within the last 14 days.

It is quite unfortunate that the actions of Mr. Governor during his trip to Abuja to submit his nomination form may have also exposed members of the House of Assembly who joined him on that trip. A viral video clearly showing the Governor sneezing into his hands in the midst of the honorable members of the House of Assembly, was shared online making it imperative that the National Centre for Disease Control takes immediate action in testing and isolating anyone who may have been exposed to the Governor within the last few days.

Our prayers and best wishes goes to the Governor at these time and we hope that the lessons learnt would help in ensuring greater compliance with laid down rules for mitigating the spread of the virus.

Thank you.
