Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 election, has paid a condolence visit to the family of late Rotimi Akeredolu, former governor of Ondo state.

 

Akeredolu died after a protracted battle with prostate cancer on December 27.

 

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Obi said he visited Oyo state to commiserate with the family of Akeredolu alongside Pat Utomi, a former presidential candidate and LP chieftain.

 

He said as president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Akeredolu was passionate about building a better and more productive Nigeria.

 

 “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,” he said.

 

“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.”
