Peter Obi, the Labour Party‘s presidential candidate in the 2023 elections, and Pat Utomi, a Nigerian economist, made a condolence visit to the family of the late Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, in Ibadan.

Obi revealed this on Tuesday, January 2, when he posted images from the visit on his X (Twitter) page.

“Today, together with my very dear elder brother, Prof. Pat Utomi, I arrived Ibadan, Oyo State, to commiserate with the bereaved wife of Late Gov Rotimi Akeredolu, Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, and the entire Akeredolu Family, as we all mourn the death of Gov Akeredolu,” Obi said.

“While Gov Akeredolu was the President of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, and subsequently as a Governor, he stayed consistent on how to build a better Nigeria where there would be respect for the rule of law, security of lives and properties of Nigerian citizens.

“He believed in a restructured and productive Nigeria. May God who is pleased to call him home at this time grant him eternal rest and grant his dear wife, Mrs Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, the entire Akeredolu family, and all of us who mourn him, the fortitude to bear his irreplaceable loss. -PO”

Allub Times reports that Akeredolu died on December 27 after a long fight with prostrate cancer.
