Obi Pays Condolence Visit To Akeredolu’s Family

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general election, Peter Obi, on Tuesday paid a condolence visit to the family of the late governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, in Ibadan, Oyo State capital.

Peter Obi visited the family of the late governor, who died on Decembe 27 in company of political economist and Labour Party chieftain, Pat Utomi.

In a post on his X handle, the former Anambra State governor described Akeredolu as a believer in a restructured and productive Nigeria.

His post read, “Today, together with my very dear elder brother, Prof Pat Utomi, I arrived Ibadan, Oyo State, to commiserate with the bereaved wife of Late Gov Rotimi Akeredolu, Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, and the entire Akeredolu Family, as we all mourn the death of Gov Akeredolu.

While Gov Akeredolu was the President of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, and subsequently as a Governor, he stayed consistent on how to build a better Nigeria where there would be respect for the rule of law, security of lives and properties of Nigerian citizens.

“He believed in a restructured and productive Nigeria. May God who it pleased to call him home at this time grant him eternal rest and grant his dear wife, Mrs Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, the entire Akeredolu family, and all of us who mourn him, the fortitude to bear his irreplaceable loss.”
