Akeredolu wife wedding anniversary

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has supported the ambitionof his wife, Betty, to run for the Senate.

He said this in a message on Facebook as they mark their 41st wedding anniversary together.

His wife who hails from Imo State will be running for a seat to represent a constituency in the state.

Akeredolu said, ” I join all other well-wishers, admirers, supporters and stakeholders to support, openly and without any reservations or equivocation, my adorable Betty in her bid to continue to serve the people in her state of birth, Imo.

“I do this, most enthusiastically, as a partner, admirer and active follower for over four decades. I consider myself highly privileged to have a workaholic, gender and human rights activist, humanist and philanthropist as wife, adviser, harshest critic, supporter, political associate and, above all, an unrelenting ideologue, ready to sacrifice and confront any obstacle, natural and artificial.

“I am of the firm belief that any group, society, community, state or country, privileged to avail itself of the quintessential service of a bold crusader, as she, is lucky indeed. Seeking to continue what she started long before I came into politics, when she ran for the House of Representative, at the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly, is not strange to me or anyone who has been watching the activities of this special personality.

“I support her aspiration now, as i have always done, even before i joined politics. i know her to be a passionate believer in rectitude. I believe in her mission to emancipate women from the shackles of all forms of oppression. I am proud of this gift from Imo State. I support her aspiration wholeheartedly. I am convinced that the people of Imo State will enjoy quality representation from her. Her presence in the Senate promises exciting moments.”
