Governor of Oyo State S'eyi Makinde has mourned the death of his colleague from Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu who was reported dead early today Wednesday, December 27th, 2023.
Former Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu died in a Lagos secret apartment where he was receiving treatment after he had traveled to Germany for medical treatment.
Akeredolu had faced political tension from calls for his resignation by the loyalists of his Deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, and members of the main opposition party in the state, People's Democratic Party (PDP) despite his ailing health condition.
Mourning his exit, Governor Makinde said: “I received with great sadness the news of the death of my brother, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, the governor of Ondo State and chairman, South-West Governors’ Forum.
“I condole with his wife and children as well as the Government and people of Ondo State over this sad loss. In Aketi, South-West has lost a dogged fighter and courageous leader who worked hard for the peace, prosperity, and progress of the region.
“I have also lost a worthy co-fighter for the South-West cause because we were both at the vanguard of the struggle, which birthed the South-West Security Network Agency codenamed Amotekun.
“Aketi’s fervent and unrelenting stance on issues that border on South-West’s regional integration and progress is a lesson for leaders. He will be sorely missed.
“Rest well, my dear brother, and may the good Lord be with everyone you left behind.”
