The Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, has pledged the commitment of the Southwest Governors Forum to accord a befitting burial to late Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, who died on Wednesday.

Speaking with newsmen on behalf of the other southwest governors in Ibadan after commiserating with wife and family of the deceased governor at his Jericho private residence on Friday, the Ogun governor disclosed that plans are on the way to set up a committee that will ensure a befitting state burial for the late Akeredolu.

He noted that the governors of the Southwest will ensure that Mr Akeredolu’s burial is given the respect and honour that he deserves, saying, “We will accord Akeredolu a burial that will be befitting of a great statesman and one of the leading lights of the southwest region.”
