Minister of Solid Minerals Development, Mr Dele Alake, has described Ondo’s former governor Rotimi Akeredolu as one who struggled for the entrenchment of true federalism.

The minister eulogized Akeredolu in a condolence message to his family, Ondo people and other loved ones on Thursday.

Recall that Gov. Akeredolu died in a German hospital on Wednesday. He was aged 67.

Alake said that the deceased carved a niche for himself as a bold and irrepressible defender of the interests of Ondo people and the Yoruba nation.

“I am deeply shocked by the loss of a brother, friend and indeed one of the leaders of the progressive movement.

“As State Governor, he made the welfare of the people the focal point of governance.

“Nigeria has lost a titan, but we are consoled by the fact that he left an indelible mark in the political firmament,” he said.
