Wife of the late Ondo State Governor, Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, has lambasted her late husband’s niece, Funke Akeredolu Aruna, for pitching her tent with the current governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

Betty on her Instagram page on Monday described the late governor’s niece as shameless for supporting Aiyedatiwa ahead of the November governorship election in the state.

The governor, who was formerly Akeredolu’s deputy, was sworn in on 27th December following the death of his former boss.

Akeredolu died at a hospital in Germany, on December 26, 2023, after a long battle with leukaemia and prostate cancer.

Following the passage of Akeredolu, his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, was sworn in as Governor by the State Chief Judge, Olusegun Odunsola.

Before the governor’s death, internal wrangling had severed his relationship with Aiyedatiwa, bordering on alleged disloyalty of the then deputy governor, which led to the disbandment of his aides.

The State Assembly, through the backings of the governor, also attempted to impeach Aiyedatiwa, even though the details of the duo’s quarrel remained sketchy till Akeredolu’s death.

Speaking through her post alongside the picture of her husband’s niece wearing a cap with an inscription “I am lucky”, Betty said, “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!”

This outburst has, however, generated outrage on social media as many believe she should be mourning her husband and not engaging in a fight with anyone.
