The First Lady of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has condoled with the widow of the late Ondo State Governor Mrs Betty Akeredolu.

Tinubu, who paid a visit to the Ibadan residence of the Akeredolus, noted that the late governor fought gallantly to stay alive, but every human existence is subject to the will of God.

She noted that the nation has lost one of its great men.

“He did his best. God will be there for you when God shows up for you, that is what really matters,” she said.

She admonished the widow and the family to take solace in God and trust in him alone at this trying time.

She prayed that God continue to uphold the family.

Responding on behalf of the family, the brother to the late governor, Professor Oluwole Ayodeji Akeredolu, said the exit of the governor was a painful one at this time. Still, the family is consoled by the fact that he has gone to rest.

He thanked the First Lady and her entourage for the condolence visit, which he described as a great honour.

Her entourage included the wife of the Vice President, Hajia Nana Shetima, wives of members of the National Assembly, wives of state governors of Lagos and Ogun, wife of the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Chairman and others.
