Widow of the late former governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, Betty has come out to thank President Bola Tinubu and the Southern Governors for their contributions towards the burial of her late husband.

She recently had her say after Tinubu’s condolence visit to the family in Owo, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to her, President Tinubu recently paid a condolence visit to her family, and they understand why he couldn’t attend the burial ceremony due to the dictate of Yoruba culture.

Betty added that BAT could not have attended the burial of a man he regarded as his younger brother.

Her words, “As you are aware, the President, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, paid his condolence visit to my family. Present at the visit are my children and extended family members.

On behalf of my family, I appreciate Mr. President. We understood he couldn’t attend the burial ceremony due to the dictate of Yoruba culture. He couldn’t have attended the burial of his younger brother.

Coming today (Wednesday) is a big deal because we are in a better atmosphere. I also express my profound gratitude to the Southern Governors for their immense financial contributions to the burial. Most especially, Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-olu, who singlehandedly brought Aketi’s remains back to Nigeria. We appreciate this huge show of love and we are grateful and forever indebted to him.

I requested that Mr. President see where Aketi has been laid to rest and he followed me. We are deeply grateful to Mr. President for coming. He is indeed, Aketi’s brother and friend.

I told Mr. President, yes, Aketi has left but he lives because he left behind legacies. It is our wish that those legacies continue and are built upon where necessary.”
