Ondo Monarchs Hold Prayer Session For Akeredolu


Monarchs in Ondo State, under the auspices of De 130 Krown Obas, on Thursday, organised a prayer session for Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, who has been sick for some months and has gone abroad for treatment.


The group, which comprises some first-class and second-class Obas in the state, also condemned the way some people in the state were allegedly playing politics with the health of the governor, saying such must stop.

The chairman of the group and Molokun of Atijere in the Ilaje Local Government Area of the state, Oba Samuel Adeoye, while speaking at the end of the session held in Akure, said, “The purpose of today’s meeting is to organise a special prayer for our governor because we are all aware that our governor has health challenges.

“As traditional rulers, we believe that there is a need for us to organise this special prayer, we can jointly pray for our governor to have a quick recovery so that he can join us as soon as possible.


“Our governor is a good person and he had done so much for us. Since he came down with some health issues some months ago, we have not been happy. We feel it is necessary as kings to pray for him so that God would grant him quick peace.”

The Chairman, Board of Trustees of the association and Olupe of Ipe Akoko, Oba Francis, Apata, in his remarks, said, “Several bodies have been praying for his (Akeredolu’s) quick recovery, the council of the Obas in Ondo State has also prayed for his recovery, we believe as a constituted body, there is need for us to pray for his quick recovery and that is why we decided today to pray for his quick recovery.”


Benco news reported that Akeredolu had last month transmitted power to his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, to stand in as acting governor, while he took a three-week medical leave.
