Ondo Gov, Akeredolu weeps over death of protocol chief


The remains of Ogunbodede would arrive Owo, his hometown today for commencement of preparations for his burial without further delay.

Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, is mourning again in the new year following the death of his Chief of Protocol, Tosin Ogunbodede.

This is coming a few weeks after Governor Akeredoluโ€™s mourned the death of his Commissioner of Regional Integration and Special Duties, Professor Bayonle Ademodi.

Ogunbodede died on Saturday died in a ghastly accident while returning from Ibadan.

Late Ogunbodede died alongside his driver when the Toyota Corolla car they were riding in rammed into a trailer along Ilesa-Akure road.


Ondo Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo, who stated this in a press statement said late Ogunbodede discharged his assigned duties with utmost attention and responsibility.

Ojogo described Ogunbodede as a very loyal political lieutenant of Governor Akeredolu.

According to the statement, โ€œFor Governor Akeredolu, this is a personal loss. It becomes more emotional when itโ€™s recalled that the loyal and dedicated Tosin stopped by at the Governorโ€™s Law Hub, Ibadan, to greet his Principal while returning to Akure from his uncleโ€™s residence.

โ€œEven with a heavy heart, Governor Akeredolu enjoins all to take solace in the fact of Godโ€™s infallibility-He Giveth and Taketh. This is just as he expresses the heartfelt condolence of his immediate family, Government and the good people of Ondo State to the wife, children as well as the family of his late CoP.


โ€œThe Ondo State Government shall unveil burial plans after due consultations with the family of the deceased.โ€

In July last year, Ondo Commissioner for Health, Dr. Wahab Adegbenro, died of COVID-19 complications.
