Akeredolu doggedly used Amotekun formation to defend our people —Oodua Youth Coalition mourns

Oodua Youth Coalition Mourns The Transition To Glory Of Gov Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN, CON.

~ describes late Akoni Oodua as a fearless fighter whose legacy will stand the test of time.

It’s with unbridled sobriety that we receive the news of the sudden demise of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN who was until his death the Governor of Ondo State.

It’s worthy of note to state that the late Governor’s life revolved around service – from serving as the President of the Nigeria Bar Association to superintending over the affairs of his people as the Executive Governor of Ondo State.

Aketi as he was fondly called has a common denominator of bravery that reverberates across SouthWestern Nigeria and the country at large, and earned him the Akoni Oodua Award at our 2022 Annual Public Lecture.

His defining stance of issues of security in his state and the consequent initiative to launch the Western Nigeria Security Network (codenamed Amotekun) with his brother Governors across the SouthWestern State speaks on his doggedness and innate desire to defend his people against oppressive forces.

While we condole with his immediate family and the people of Ondo State, we urge them to find solace in the accomplished life of service the deceased lived.

We pray for the repose of his soul.

Signed:
Ogbeni Oluyi Tayo
President,
Oodua Youth Coalition.
