It is with profound sorrow that I extend my heartfelt condolences to the people of Ondo State on the tragic passing of Governor Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu. His departure leaves an irreplaceable void in our hearts and in the governance of our dear state.
Governor Akeredolu was not just a political figure; he was a fearless leader, a compassionate soul, and a true defender of justice. His tireless efforts in championing equity, fairness, and justice through legal advocacy and his governance are exemplary and will be remembered for generations to come.
His legacy of service and dedication to Ondo State is evident in the transformative strides witnessed during his tenure. The roads, schools, and healthcare facilities he established stand as a testament to his commitment to the welfare of the people.
In the face of adversity, Governor Akeredolu showed unwavering leadership, especially during the tragic incident at the Catholic Church of Owo. His compassion and statesmanship guided the people through a period of immense grief.
His passing is not just a loss to his family or our party but to the entire nation. We mourn the departure of a true fighter, a stalwart defender of truth, and an exemplary leader.
I extend my heartfelt sympathies to Mrs. Betty Akeredolu, Acting Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa, and the entire Akeredolu family. I urge them to find strength in this challenging time and assure them of our unwavering support and prayers.
May his soul rest in peace.
Hon. Gbogi Emmanuel
Chairman Akoko South South LCDA
