THE Governor of Ondo State, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, who was diagnosed of COVID-19 is working from the isolation centre, the state Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr Donald Ojogo has said.
Mr Ojogo in a chat with newsmen on Friday in Akure, said there was no cause for alarm as the governor was fully in charge of the affairs of the state.
Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Agboola Ajayi had decamped from the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) where he is seeking to use the platform to contest for the governorship position of the state.
Ojogo said, “Though Mr Governor is on self-isolation, the government is not grounded.
“He is working from isolation, so the state cannot be grounded.
“The governor cannot hand over to the deputy, Agboola Ajayi; the deputy has left governance, though he is still in government. So, you cannot hand over to such a person.
“We are not considering that; no one will advise the governor to hand over to the deputy.
“Mr Governor is still strong enough to work.”
