Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State has dismissed claims that he’s sick, stressing that he’s fit as a fiddle.
Adeleke spoke upon his return to Nigeria after a one-month working vacation abroad.
The governor, who arrived at the Lagos International Airport in an elated mood, said he feels refreshed and recharged.
Adeleke’s remark was contained in a statement by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed on Wednesday.
He said: “I’m elated to be back in Nigeria in the midst of my people. You all can see I’m in an excited mood as I’m now recharged and refreshed to deliver more good governance and service delivery to the people of Osun.
“The insinuation of whether I’m sick or otherwise is unfounded. I am as fit as a fiddle. I went on a working vacation to both recharge and meet partners for the development and progress of our state.
“Those spreading falsehood about my trip are just embarrassed and dumbfounded by our achievements. That’s why they’re spreading all those unfounded rumours.
“I’m back now, hale and hearty. The good work continues in Osun.”
