We mourns the passing of Governor Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu

The entire family of the Aladegbaiye shares our unreserved condolences with the family of the late Governor Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, the 7th Governor of Ondo State.

President Bola Tinubu has described the late Governor of Ondo State, as a man of courage, ideas, and action.

Mr Akeredolu, 67, passed away in a German Hospital on Wednesday after a prolonged battle with leukemia and prostate cancer.

The state government has released an official statement announcing his death.

In a statement he signed on Wednesday, President Tinubu said he could not fairly capture in words the deceased Governor’s towering figure and his human essence.

Announcing Akeredolu’s death earlier, the Ondo State Government, in a statement by the Information and Orientation Commissioner, Mrs. Bamidele Ademola-Olateju, described him as an extraordinary leader, lamenting that “it was a sad day in Ondo State.”
