The Ondo State governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, on Monday, has tested negative for coronavirus seven days after he was confirmed positive.

The governor disclosed this on Monday at a news briefing in Akure.

See thread:

The Governor has also appointed Temitayo Oluwatuyi popularly called Tukana as the new Secretary to the State Government (SSG).

Announcing Oluwatuyi’s new appointment, Akeredolu on his official Twitter account wrote;

“Today, I announced the appointment of Hon. Temitayo Oluwatuyi “Tukana” as the Secretary to the State Government (SSG) to resume immediately following the resignation of Hon. Ifedayo Abegunde.”

This is coming after Ifedayo Abegunde (Abena) resigned from the position on Monday morning. There are speculations that Abegunde is loyal to the embattled Deputy Governor who defected to PDP last month.

He communicated this in a letter dated July 6 and addressed to the Governor, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu.
