Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, widow of the late Rotimi Akeredolu, former governor of Ondo, has berated Funke Akeredolu Aruna, his niece, for “supporting” the gubernatorial bid of Lucky Aiyedatiwa, governor of the state.

Aiyedatiwa, a former deputy governor, was sworn in as governor of Ondo in December 2023 after Akeredolu’s demise.

Aiyedatiwa has since declared his intention to run for a fresh term in the November poll.

“Definitely, I will be running. I’m already a sitting governor. Let me say this: Nobody wants to be governor for one year,” he said in an interview last month.

“Give me what the constitution allows me to do. At least, let me have a chance of running for one more term.”

In a post on Instagram, Anyanwu-Akeredolu posted a picture of Funke donning an “I’m Lucky” face cap, in what was an apparent show of support for Aiyedatiwa’s gubernatorial bid.

In the post, she said time would tell if Funke is indeed lucky.

“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!,” she wrote.

In a tribute to Akeredolu in February, Anyanwu-Akeredolu tackled persons who described her late husband as a “weakling” for showing her so much love.
