Akande Defends Absence from APC Rally on Medical Appointment

Chief Bisi Akande, a former Interim Chairman of the All Progressives Congress [APC], has defended his absence from the campaign rally for the party governorship candidate in Ondo State, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, explicating that he only decided to stay away from stress in line with the advice of his doctors contrary to
reports in the media that he shunned the event.

Chief Akande, who spoke through his media aide, Mr. Lani Baderinwa, in a statement issued on Friday said he had been going abroad for medical treatment.
Absence in the rally also were President Muhammadu Buhari; Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo; Senator Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Governor Rauf Aregbesola
The statement read, “Chief Bisi Akande has no reason to shun APC campaigns and rallies in Ondo state because every APC aspirant that contested the Ondo state governorship primary in September has always been his close associate and knew so well that he (Bisi Akande) is being treated from one hospital to another in the USA, the U.K. and in Nigeria since last April.

“He, according to medical advice, is being asked to take things easy in the time being. Despite that, as an APC respectable leader, he has been working behind the scene to reconcile differences among the warring tendencies in the party.”
