The late former Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu SAN, was accorded a solemn and heartfelt reception upon the arrival of his remains in his hometown of Owo. The atmosphere was heavy with emotion as the people of Owo gathered at Emure junction to pay their respects to their departed illustrious son.

Hon. Oluwole Ogunmolasuyi and Hon. Morenike Witherspoon, along with other members of the State House of Assembly from Owo, led the town's populace in receiving the late governor's remains, demonstrating the deep sense of honor and respect they held for him.

Throughout the streets of Owo, crowds gathered, including students from local secondary schools such as Imade College and St. Louis Grammar School. They waved Nigerian flags, symbolizing their respect for the late former governor as his convoy passed by.

At Mobile Junction in Ijebu-Owo, representatives from the palace of Oba Kofoworola Oladoyinbo Ojomo, the Olijebu of Ijebu-Owo, received the body, further highlighting the unity and reverence of the community for their departed leader.

Tears flowed freely as the casket carrying the late governor's remains passed through the streets, with a large crowd struggling to catch a glimpse, showcasing the deep sorrow felt by the people of Owo.

Despite earlier events held in the state capital of Akure, the people of Owo showed their unwavering support by participating in the Traditional Ajabue procession, lining the streets and patiently awaiting the arrival of the late Akeredolu's body.

The funeral proceedings are set to continue on Thursday, February 22, with a Service of Songs, Wake-Keep, and Candlelight procession, allowing the community to come together once again to honor and bid farewell to their beloved former governor.
