Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, wife of Rotimi Akeredolu, Ondo State Governor, has denied reports that her husband is dead.
Reports had over the weekend emerged on social media that Akeredolu, who is in Germany, has died.
It was reported that he died of cancer.
But reacting, Betty on her Facebook page said, “Baba Aketi niyen! Dey enjoy your vacation jare. A begi wetin I dey hear, gist kini? Shitloveragain? Na you go waka go hell fire!”
Also reacting, Akeredolu’s Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Mr. Richard Olatunde, attributed the rumour to some political adversaries of the present administration in the State.
Olatunde, on Twitter, uploaded some video footages showing Akeredolu dancing and singing praises to God.
He assured Nigerians that the Governor is hale and hearty.
He said: “The fraud called ‘Gistlover’ has continued to show the irresponsibility of the social media. It has mindlessly advanced its voyage of spreading fake news. The handler of the Instagram page is nothing but cold-hearted creature.
“We must identify the bad eggs in the society. They are everywhere. The blessings of the social media must not rob us of our sense of responsibility. We must be deliberate in making sure that only sane and responsible people are taken seriously on the social media space. Don’t listen to naysayers. God is our guide.”
