Recall, in September, the ailing governor returned to Nigeria  after a three-month medical leave in Germany and had handed over power to his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa after President Bola Tinubu directed him to do so.

His deputy, Aiyedatiwa, has been standing in as Acting Governor.

Akeredolu upon his return to Nigeria, stayed in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital and tried to govern his state from there, which sparked an public outrage.

On July 9, Akeredolu’s wife, Betty, announced the suspension of activities lined up to celebrate her 70th birthday.

The Ondo first lady announced the suspension of the activities in Twitter posts after questions were raised over plans to have a fanfare despite her husband’s ill health.

Her Tweet reads;

“Hello Family and Friends. This is to inform you that all activities lined up to mark my 70th birthday are hereby suspended till further notice due to unforeseen circumstances beyond my control. Sorry for any inconvenience caused by this development.

“Nevertheless, be assured that I will be celebrated in style upon my return. Thank you for your understanding. I remain Arabinrin a.k.a Ada Owere I.”
