Speaking through the lawmakers, the Speaker of the House, Rt.Hon. Olamide Oladiji, explained that the governor had embarked on a 21-day leave for medical treatment abroad.

He said the leave started June 7, 2023 to July 6, 2023 due to the Public Holidays on June 12 (Democracy Day) and Eid el Kabir (28th and 29th, June, 2023).

Oladiji further disclosed that the governor, who had directed his Deputy, Hon. Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, to act as governor while away, has assured of his resumption on July 6, 2023.
