National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has disclosed that the ailing Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, is incapacitated.
Adamu stated this at a meeting between the national leadership of the party and APC state chairmen.
The national chairman also said President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is consulting extensively before drawing up his ministerial list.
The president has just started. And he is doing his extensive consultation before coming up with his nominees for ministers.
“The nomination of the ministers will come first. They will go through their screening until they are pronounced after they have been submitted by Mr. President. And Mr President will formally appoint his Ministers and swear them in.
“Only after doing that will he disclose each of them to the country to know which Minister is going to which ministry, and how many ministries we are going to have,” he said.
Adamu’s revelation comes hours after Akeredolu, who is also the chairman of South West Governor’s Forum, wrote to the state House of Assembly to extend his medical leave Indefinitely.
The governor, who has been in and out of hospitals, transmitted power to his deputy, Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, last month.
He had said he would resume duty this week, but Akeredolu extended the medical leave indefinitely.
