Mrs Akeredolu thanked the president for the show of love.

“As you are aware, the President, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, paid his condolence visit to my family. Present at the visit are my children and extended family members.

“I requested that Mr President see where Aketi has been laid to rest and he followed me. We are deeply grateful to Mr President for coming. He’s indeed, Aketi’s brother and friend.

“I told Mr President, yes, Aketi has left but he lives because he left behind legacies. It is our wish that those legacies continue and are built upon where necessary,” she said.
