Is Governor Akeredolu Alive or dead?
An Ondo State High Court sitting in Akure has issued an order mandamus compelling the Ondo State House of Assembly and its Speaker, Olamide Oladiji, to constitute a medical panel to assess Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s health. This development comes after Akeredolu’s return from a medical leave in Germany, with subsequent relocation to Ibadan, Oyo State, for further treatment.

The group emphasized the necessity of the suit to uphold public trust and ensure transparency by elected officials.
The motion, brought under section 6(6b) of the 1999 constitution (as amended) and order 22 rule 1 of the Ondo State High Court Rules, prayed for an order compelling the assembly to carry out statutory and constitutional duties on the governor as stipulated under section 189(4) of the 1999 Constitution.
The court, presided over by Justice A. I. Kolawole, ordered the lawmakers to set up a medical panel that will provide a report on the governor’s health in line with Section 189(4) of the 1999 Constitution.
