OSOGBO – Anxiety is mounting in Osogbo, the Osun State capital over the state of health of the state Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
The situation is further heightened by the absence of Mr Aregbesola from state functions for the past three weeks.
Unconfirmed reports claimed the Governor has some health challenges which forced him to travel out of the country to seek medical attention.
It was gathered that the Governor recently collapsed in his room and suffered some injuries before he was rushed to an undisclosed hospital in India.
But the Director of Bureau of Communications and Strategy, Mr Semiu Okanlawon, dismissed the anxiety over the governor’s health, saying “the Governor is hale and healthy.”
Mr. Okanlawon told Vanguard yesterday that he personally received message two days ago from the Governor to carry out certain official assignments.
