I am not involved in the production of ‘Aketi customised’ whisky- Akeredolu

Ondo state Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has distanced himself from the production of an imaginary Blue Label (Johnny Walker) brand of whisky.


The brand of whisky which is trending on the social media carries  an inscription of the Ondo State official logo on it.


Also on the blue label whisky is the name Aketi, imprinted on it with the ‘t’ appearing as the governor’s signature.


The Governor, in a Statement signed by his Senior Special on Media and Publicity, Ojo Oyewamide, advised members of the public to disregard an attempt to blackmail him and his government with the wine production.


The statement noted that the Governor does not require to produce customized drinks of that nature for his re-election.

According to the statement, the supposedly customized Aketi Whisky which is now trending on a platform known as the IDANRE HILLS REPORTERS should therefore, be ignored.


The statement added, ‘It is with a great concern that yet another plot hatched to blackmail Governor Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, SAN, has been uncovered. “The carefully packaged plot involves the production of an imaginary Blue Label(Johnny Walker) brand of whisky, with the inscription of the Ondo State official logo on it. Also carefully imprinted is Aketi, with the ‘t’ appearing as Mr. Governor’s signature.


” For the avoidance of doubt, Mr Governor does not require to produce customized drinks of that nature for his re-election. Neither has he commissioned any associate, friend or even aides to embark on such wasteful venture. This is more so, that Governor Akeredolu’s modest and non-ostentatious life style has never been in doubt.

 “Accordingly, the supposedly customized Aketi Whisky which is now trending on a platform known as the IDANRE HILLS REPORTERS should therefore, be ignored.


” It appears inconceivable to pre-empt the outcome of any investigation in respect of this distasteful act. All the same, it is pertinent to let the general public know that those behind this grand plot are desperate power mongers who will stop at nothing to create despicable and imaginary scenarios to play their game”.


The Governor said the motive is to create the impression that so much of State money has been spent to produce the Whisky, adding that ” Aside this already deflated plot, many more are expected from these political scavengers on an impossible mission”.
