The majority leader of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Oluwole Ogunmolasuyi on Saturday said the viral video showing Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu in the hospital was released in good faith without any intention of harming the governor or his family.
Ogunmolasuyi was reacting to the statement credited to an Abuja based Lawyer and Ondo State indigene, Kayode Ajulo who had earlier condemned the release of the video, saying it was a violation of the privacy of the Governor as it portrayed him in a vulnerable state.
Ajulo said, “Sharing such a video of the Governor in a weakened condition is highly insensitive and uncalled for”.
Reacting to Ajulo’s comments in an interview with TENET on Saturday, Ogunmolasuyi however said, “I meant no harm with the video. It was sent out because some people are saying that the governor was on life supporting machine.
“As at yesterday( Friday), he served everyone around him with food and cake without any assistance and he danced to Yinka Ayefele music for more than 1 hour 30mins and he was on his feet for over 2 hours without any support.
“He spoke with the entire 9th ODHA Assembly assembly via group call. He also spoke with the entire ODHA 10th Assembly via group call yesterday.
“He spoke with many people that called his phone to wish him happy birthday yesterday.
“Some are saying that he can’t sign or attend to issues. As at yesterday more than 14 crucial issues that involved both 9th and 10th ODHA assemblies, he was able to address them one after the other.
“I never mean any evil. All what I wanted was to let the whole world know that Oga is alive and is getting better everyday.”
