The Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, is dead.
A family source told SaharaReporters on Wednesday that Akeredolu died in Lagos.
SaharaReporters learnt that he was managed by State House doctors up to his death because they could not fly him abroad.
“Akeredolu is dead; he died in Lagos,” the source said.
He was 67 years old.
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.
On July 9, Akeredolu’s wife, Betty announced the suspension of activities lined up to celebrate
her 70th birthday.
