The Ondo state governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, is dead.
The Nation learnt that Akeredolu died in Germany on Wednesday, December 27.
He was 67 years old.
It was gathered that State House doctors managed him up to his death because they could not fly him abroad.
One of the commissioners in Ondo state who pleaded anonymity confirmed Akeredolu’s death to The Nation.
A reliable source said: “Akeredolu is dead; he died in Lagos. They were looking for dialysis machines to be sent to his secret location in Lagos last week.”
Akeredolu had returned to Nigeria in September following a three-month medical leave in Germany.
On December 13, he went on another medical leave after being directed by President Bola Tinubu to hand over power to his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.
The medical leave was a follow-up to a previous medical treatment.
