Akeredolu’s wife drags late husband’s niece for supporting Aiyedatiwa

Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, the widow of the late Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has expressed her strong disapproval of her niece, Funke Akeredolu Aruna, via Instagram.

She criticized Funke, labeling her as shameless and likening her support for the incumbent governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, in the upcoming November governorship election in the state to that of a serpent.

The governor, who was formerly Akeredolu’s deputy, was sworn in on December 27 following the death of his former boss.

Before the governor’s death, internal wrangling had severed his relationship with Aiyedatiwa, bordering on the alleged disloyalty of the then-deputy governor, which led to the disbandment of his aides.

The State Assembly, with the backing of the governor, also attempted to impeach Aiyedatiwa, even though the details of the duo’s quarrel remained sketchy till Akeredolu’s death.

In her post alongside the picture of her husband’s niece wearing a cap with the inscription “I am lucky”, Betty said, “Behold the face of Aketi’s niece, Funke Akeredolu Aruna, the former deputy chief protocol to Aketi, shamelessly parades as ‘I am lucky’ Bloody serpent! Time will tell if she is truly lucky!”

This outburst has, however, generated outrage on social media, as many believe she should be mourning her husband and not engaging in a fight with anyone.

Some appealed to her to maintain her cool on issues relating to the election.
