The Ondo State Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, on Sunday,explained that his colleagues did not deliberately hoard palliatives made for their states.

Akeredolu, who is also the Chairman of South-West Governors’ Forum, said the insistence on official flag-off ceremony by the Coalition Against COVID-19 before the distribution was largely responsible for the delay in distributing the items to the people of the states.

The governor stated this while speaking at the church service marking the 3rd anniversary of enthronement of the Bishop of Owo Diocese, the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Dr. Stephen Fagbemi, held at the All Saints Church Idasen Owo, Ondo State.

He said, “Those states where the palliatives were warehoused, were also waiting for the donation of the remaining items and flag-off by the CA-COVID-19.”

The Governor explained that Ondo State was saved from the looting spree due to the continuous distribution of the palliatives.
