Reps Minority Caucus Mourns Akeredolu’s Demise, Says He ‘Prioritised Welfare, Security of His People’

The Minority Caucus of the House of Representatives has condoled with the people of Ondo State and the family of the former governor of the state, Chief Rotimi Akeredolu over his death.

The caucus eulogized late Akeredolu whom it described as a “quintessential bar man” and strong advocate for the rule of law.

According to a statement issued in Abuja by the leader of the Minority Caucus, Hon. Kingsley Chinda, late Akeredolu as the governor of Ondo State and Chairman of the Southwest Governors Forum “prioritized the welfare and security of his people.”

The statement reads:

“On behalf of the minority caucus of the House of Representatives, I extend our deepest condolences on the passing of His Excellency, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, CON SAN, the governor of Ondo State.

 

“He was a great leader and a quintessential Bar man. His term in office as Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) President was characterised by the campaign by the NBA for the adherence to the rule of law.  As Governor of Ondo State and Chairman of South-West Governors Forum, he prioritised the welfare and security of his people and championed the call for the establishment of Amotekun, a South-West security outfit created to enhance the security of lives and property in the zone.

 

“Governor Akeredolu was a courageous and fearless leader who spoke truth to power. He was also a major advocate for the return of power to the south during the 2023 presidential election in the spirit of equity and fairness.

 

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Betty, his  family, the government, the people of Ondo State, and the entire nation during this difficult time.

 

“Governor Akeredolu’s contributions to Ondo State and the nation will be remembered, and his legacy will endure.
