THERE is anxiety in Ekiti State over the health of the deputy governor of the state, Mrs. Funmi Olayinka.
A statement by the state Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, said “Ekiti State government wishes to inform members of the public that the deputy governor of the state, Mrs. Funmilayo Olayinka, has taken leave to attend to issues relating to her health.”
Ekundayo said in the two-paragraph statement that “we urge all well-meaning citizens of the state to remember her in their prayers.”
However, a source in the government said that the deputy governor only applied for leave, saying she could do whatever she wanted with her leave.
There has been anxiety over the health of the deputy governor among her supporters and it became heightened on Monday following the government statement.
“Her health has been a source of concern. But with the government statement, it means that there is more to it now because they had kept mute all this while over the matter,” a source close to government said.
