‘Akeredolu deserves state burial’ – Gov Aiyedatiwa

Akeredolu Aiyedatiwa

On Wednesday, Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa of Ondo State announced the formation of a committee dedicated to organizing a dignified burial for the late governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.

Aiyedatiwa shared this information during a condolence visit from the Olubaka of Oka, Oba Yusuf Adeleye, in Akure.

The governor expressed his belief that Akeredolu, who passed away while serving, should receive a funeral befitting his status.

“For me, he is a friend, brother, principal, leader and my then-governor, whom I deputised for three years. The man whose impact on the state as governor can’t be forgotten and other initiatives that he put in place to make life better for our people. He has come and done his bit, but God has taken him home. We will miss him, but we will take solace in knowing that he lived a purposeful life while alive.

“He died in service, so he deserves a state burial and that is exactly what we will give him. We have even set up a committee. We are waiting for the immediate family. We are ready anytime they give a date,” Governor Aiyedatiwa said.
