JUST IN: Ondo Govt Fixes Date For Akeredolu’s Burial

The Ondo State Government has declared that the late Governor Rotimi Akeredolu will be buried on February 23 and 24, 2024.

Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa’s statement, delivered following a state cabinet meeting, was overshadowed by a heated dispute between Aiyedatiwa and Princess Oladunni Odu, the Secretary to the State Government (SSG).

According to reputable reports, Odu was outraged when she discovered her name omitted from the burial planning committee.

“The burial has been fixed between February 23 and 24. Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa, who also doubled as the Chairman of the Committee made the announcement on Monday,” a source at the meeting said.

The source added, “SSG (Odu) got wind that her name was not on the list of the committee and during a meeting with the governor, Aiyedatiwa, at the governor’s office, she raised her concerns about it.


“It became a whole lot of argument and charged at the governor for not including her on the list of the committee. But it took the intervention of other cabinet members at the meeting to calm the nerves of the woman. In fact, I’m aware that the meeting did not end peacefully due to the manner Odu behaved.”

“Don’t forget that Odu also has eyes on the seat of the governor and she is ready to contest in the governorship race,” another source added.

Recall that on January 5, the body of the late former Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, arrived in Nigeria from Germany.

Platinumpost reports that Rotimi Akeredolu died of leukaemia and prostate cancer on December 27, 2023, two ailments that had made him incapacitated for several months.
