Arakunrin Akeredolu went on his first medical leave to treat what was then an undisclosed ailment in June and returned in September. When he returned, the governor’s health was still being managed in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State where he intended to continue governing Ondo State, a situation that drew public outrage.

In December, he commenced another medical leave that was said to be a follow-up to his initial medical treatment but not before writing to the state assembly, formally transmitting power to the Deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa in acting capacity.

However, Mr Akeredolu’s death on Wednesday paves the way for Mr Aiyedatiwa to be sworn in as the substantive governor of the state.
