Condolences were expressed by Abia State Governor, Alex Otti, to the family, government, and people of Ondo State on the passing of former Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.

The statement released by the Ondo State Government revealed that Akeredolu passed away on Wednesday, December 27, 2023, while undergoing medical treatment in Germany.

Reportedly, he lost his life to complications related to prostate cancer.

In a Thursday statement, Otti described the late Akeredolu as a valiant advocate for citizens’ rights, a proficient lawyer, an influential figure in politics, a friend, and someone with whom he maintained a special bond.

“This is in addition to the fact that he served as my personal lawyer before taking office,” Otti remarked.

Otti expressed regret that Akeredolu, who was in his second term, did not have a longer life but encouraged the family to take solace in his impact and the enduring legacy he has left behind.

Furthermore, Otti congratulated the new governor of the state, Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

He voiced confidence in Aiyedatiwa’s capability to lead the state during a particularly critical period in its political life.

Otti emphasized that one way for the new governor to honor the memory of his predecessor would be to ensure the completion of the projects they had initiated together.
