Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Governor Akeredolu had been urged to hand over the affairs of the state to his deputy, Agboola Ajayi.

Akeredolu is in isolation receiving treatment for coronavirus infection and his deputy, with whom he is having a long-running battle, wants to rule in his stead.

The governor has said he would not hand over to Ajayi.

Ajayi, in his reply to the governor's comment, issued a 21-day ultimatum to Akeredolu to obey the provisions of the constitution as required by his legal profession.

“Ordinarily, one expects Mr Governor to bring to bear on governance his background as a lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, (SAN).

"But it is rather surprising and worrisome that the Governor has chosen the part of perversion of justice, by allowing his close aides to go astray in a matter of constitutionality," a statement by Ajayi's spokesperson, Allen Sowore read.

Legit.ng reported earlier that despite testing positive for coronavirus, Governor Akeredolu vowed not to transmit power to Ajayi, his deputy governor in an acting capacity.

Akeredolu, who is in isolation and undergoing treatment at home said there was no reason for him to hand over to the deputy governor
