Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu is certainly having a rough time with his health. With his wife, Betty Akeredolu’s sudden outburst in a leaked audio, the governor is certainly sick.
Betty had in a leaked audio attacked Bunmi Ademosu, Special Adviser on Public and Inter-Governmental Relations to Governor, to stop given her husband concoction to drink.
Sources in Ondo said the governor has been battling an undisclosed ailment which is very serious. While unconfirmed source said the governor may be suffering from leukaemia, others are saying that he is sick.
Leukaemia is a cancer of blood-forming tissues, hindering the body’s ability to fight infection, according to experts.
Some months ago, the governor was said to have spent about three months in Abuja attending to his health and Ademosu was alleged to have been with him all through while his wife stayed back in Akure. Betty’s outbursts might not be unconnected with fighting to salvage her marriage.
In the leaked audio that has now gone viral, Betty hurled insults at Ademosu, telling her to leave her husband alone, calling her all sorts of names.
“I have a message for Ademosu, and I believe that she is on this Aketi women platform, I don’t have her number and I don’t think she is worthy of me having her number. I want this woman to stay away from my husband, stop sneaking concoctions, according to her, they are from her pastor, her fake pastor to give my husband to drink.
“We rely on medical care, we rely on western style of medical care and Aketi will get well. But what has triggered this message is her recent nocturnal meeting to become the deputy governor of Ondo State. Look at you, what have you got upstairs to be the deputy governor of Ondo State?
“Yes, if anything happens to Aketi and Lucky takes over, it is a constitutional thing, but for you to be scheming, I warned Aketi from the word go that this woman is no good and it is happening, she has nothing good for you, I warned you, this woman is bloody evil, but I am warning her for the very last time to stay away from my husband,” said bitterly in the leaked audio.
Betty added: “Look, you are dealing with an Igbo woman in this situation, I will deal mercilessly with you and you will never forget in your life. For the very last time, Ademosu, whatever you called yourself, stay away from Aketi, stay away from sneaking in those concoctions, stay away this woman, you won’t find it funny with me O!, you are a very terrible human being. Go away and go and enjoy your loot.”
Despite an aide of the governor, Richard Olatunde, saying on Monday that Akeredolu was performing his duties and not not sick, Betty’s outburst, has rubbished such claim.
