‘He believed in restructuring’ — Obi, Utomi pay condolence visit to Akeredolu’s family


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.”
