The Carpenter and Furniture Union (CFU) Ondo State Chapter has joined other sympathizers to mourn the demise of the governor of Ondo State, Late Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN, describing him as a fearless fighter.

Akeredolu death was officially announced by the Commissioner of Information of the State, Hon Mrs Bamidele Olateju where she stated that the People’s Governor took his last breath at the early hours of Wednesday in Germany.

Speaking with the PATH at the State Secretariat of the Union in Akure, the State President, Carpenter Adekunle Obolo said the news of the governor death was received with rude shock saying the vacuum created in the state in terms of the Late Governor’s fearlessness, boldness and openess while attending to both State and National issues would take a long time to be forgotten.

Carpenter Obolo described the Late Governor as a lover, helper and compassionate Leader that hold Artisans in the state in high esteem, noting that his impact was felt in all sectors of the state.

“We are definitely going to miss our late Governor who has done well by all standards. Are you going to talk about his impact of market women, Artisans, youths, workers welfare, this is a great loss to us as a State”.

“On behalf of the Carpenters and Furniture Union in Ondo State, I commiserate with the immediate family of Akeredolu, people of Ondo State, Ondo State Government, APC and international communities that our Dear Governor has contributed immensely to while alive”.

Meanwhile, the President commended the inaugural speech of the newly sworn-in Governor, His Excellency, Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa who promised to sustain the legacy of his Late Boss and completion of the ongoing projects across the length and breath of Ondo State.

” I have no doubt in my mind that Governor Aiyedatiwa will sustain the legacy of Late Governor because they both share the same vision of transforming our Dear Sunshine State”.

Carpenter Obolo charged the people of the state to take solace in the good legacy of Akeredolu, saying death is a debt everyone would pay.
