Human rights activist and former presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, hosted a town hall meeting in Akure, Ondo State, on Saturday, where he appealed to the state House of Assembly to invoke the doctrine of necessity concerning the health of the ailing Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu. Akeredolu had announced his plans for a medical vacation in Germany, citing health concerns.
Expressing concern for the governor’s well-being, Sowore urged Akeredolu to prioritize his health over official duties. During the town hall meeting, he questioned the authenticity of the governor’s written communication, claiming that Akeredolu, who has been unwell, might be unable to compose or sign official documents.
“It is too late for Akeredolu to resign. He is incapacitated; let him go home and take care of himself. I’m no longer demanding his resignation because it is clear that he is incapable of even resigning,” Sowore asserted. “We are not satisfied with the way and manner he handed the power. We want the proper invocation of the doctrine of necessity so that Akeredolu can go home and take care of himself.”
