Senator Oluremi Tinubu, CON, First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, has condoled with Mrs. Betty Akeredolu, widow of late Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State.

Sen. Tinubu, who was in the Ibadan, Oyo State residence of the Akeredolus, noted that late Governor Akeredolu, SAN, fought gallantly to stay alive but every human existence is subject to the will of God.

Busola Kukoyi, Special  Assistant to the Nigerian First Lady on Media, in a statement issued Friday, December 29, 2023, noted the Nigerian First Lady said that the West African country had lost one of its great men.

She also said: “He did his best. God will be there for you, when God shows up for you, that is what really matters.”

The wife of the President urged Mrs. Akeredolu and entire family to take solace in God and trust in him alone in this trying time.

Sen. Oluremi Tinubu, therefore, prayed that God continues to uphold the family.

Speaking on behalf of the family, Prof. Oluwole Ayodeji Akeredolu, brother to late Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, said the death was a painful one but the family is consoled by the fact that he has gone to rest.

Prof. Akeredolu thanked the First Lady and her entourage for the condolence visit, which he described as a great honour.

On Sen. Tinubu’s entourage to the Akeredolus in Ibadan included Hajia Nana Shetima, wife of the Vice President, Wives of members of the National Assembly, Wives of State Governors of Lagos and Ogun, Wife of the APC National Chairman, and others.
