‘Akeredolu’s legacies should continue’ – Betty reveals message to Tinubu during condolence visit

Africa-Press – Nigeria. Former First Lady of Ondo State, Betty Akeredolu on Wednesday told President Bola Tinubu that the legacies of her late husband, ex-governor Rotimi Akeredolu, must continue.

Betty urged Tinubu to ensure that Akeredolu’s legacies leaves on and are built upon.

She spoke to journalists after Tinubu paid the late governor’s family a condolence visit in Akure.

Appreciating Tinubu for the visit, Betty described the President as Akeredolu’s brother and friend.

She said, “As you are aware, the President, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, paid his condolence visit to my family. Present at the visit are my children and extended family members.

“On behalf of my family, I appreciate Mr President. We understood he couldn’t attend the burial ceremony due to the dictates of Yoruba culture. He couldn’t have attended the burial of his younger brother.

“Coming today is a big deal because we are in a better atmosphere. I also express my profound gratitude to the Southern Governors for their immense financial contributions to the burial. Most especially, Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-olu, who singlehandedly brought Aketi’s remains back to Nigeria.

“We appreciate this huge show of love and we are grateful and forever indebted to him.

“I requested that Mr President to see where Aketi has been laid to rest and he followed me. We are deeply grateful to Mr President for coming. He’s indeed, Aketi’s brother and friend.

“I told Mr President, yes, Aketi has left but he lives because he left behind legacies. It is our wish that those legacies continue and are built upon where necessary.”
