‘His space is difficult to fill’ — Tinubu visits Owo to condole with Akeredolu’s family

 President Bola Tinubu says the vacuum created by the demise of Rotimi Akeredolu, the former governor of Ondo, will be difficult to fill.


Tinubu spoke in Owo, the home town of the late Akeredolu, when he paid a condolence visit to his family on Wednesday.


Tinubu, who was accompanied by Lucky Aiyedatiwa, governor of Ondo, eulogised the late Akeredolu, describing him as a fearless politician.


Speaking also at the palace of Ajibade Ogunoye, the Olowo of Owo, Tinubu said the legacies of Akeredolu would forever be remembered by all.

He added that it was honourable to depart the world when the ovation was loudest, and praised the late Akeredolu’s passion for good governance.


“God will be with you, your children will do well in life, may you all end well. May God be with you and uphold you,” Tinubu said.


The Olowo thanked the President for the visit and described the late governor as a true democrat.


The traditional ruler appreciated Aiyedatiwa for his role in ensuring a befitting burial for his predecessor.


Akeredolu, who died on December 27, 2023, after a protracted illness, was buried last Friday in Owo
