The governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredoku, has returned to Nigeria after 3 months of medical leave in Germany.
According to Tribune, Akeredolu touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja at about 3:20 pm, Thursday, September 7, 2023.
Akeredolu, it was gathered, was flown in in a private jet with United Aviation flight number N728LB.
A source said although the governor landed in Abuja, he would immediately be flown to Ibadan Airport.
“Immigration officials will only stamp his passport in Abuja since he is just coming into the country.
“He will then be immediately flown to Ibadan Airport, possibly for onward movement, or maybe he will spend the remaining days of his extended medical leave in his Ibadan home.
“This much is clear since he will not be flying to Akure where there is local airport. He will possibly stay in Ibadan,” said another source.
The governor was flown out of the country to Germany on May 31, 2023, to get foreign medical attention.
Following rumours of his deteriorating health, pictures, and videos of the governor have been circulated on social media to dispel rumours of his death.
While recuperating, he had written to the state House of Assembly to seek an extension of his medical leave.
His deputy, Lucky Ayedatiwa, has been acting in his stead for over three months.
