Ondo State Government Criticizes Ajulo for Akeredolu’s Signature Assertion

The Ondo State Government dismissed as baseless the claim made by Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Kayode Ajulo, asserting that the signature of ailing Governor Rotimi Akeredolu was being forged by certain officials. Charles Titiloye, the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice of the state, labeled the allegation as baseless and mischievous.
Ajulo, appearing on Arise Television’s Morning Show on Monday, stated that he had reliable information as a lawyer and that private investigators had been engaged to look into the matter. However, Titiloye, in response to HERALDREPORTERS, deemed Ajulo’s claim as politically motivated and unsubstantiated. He emphasized that only the Governor could claim his signature was forged and refuted the possibility of forgery.
Similarly, the state Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mrs. Bamidele Ademola-Olateju, denied the allegation, insisting that the signature of the governor was not forged. She cautioned against spreading misinformation and urged focus on working for the progress of the state.
In the midst of the controversy, lawyer Mr. Allen Sowore called on the Ondo State Executive Council to investigate the alleged forgery of the governor’s signature. Sowore emphasized the need for a comprehensive investigation to uncover the circumstances behind multiple purported signatures on sensitive government documents. He warned that public office holders exploiting the governor’s absence for personal gain would be held accountable.
Governor Akeredolu, who is still recuperating in his Ibadan residence following a medical vacation in Germany, has not alleged that his signature was forged. The government maintains that the allegations are unfounded and politically motivated.
