Abaribe who noted that Akeredolu ‘s death has robbed Nigeria of a balancing voice on national issues irrespective of his political affiliation, nonetheless admonished political leaders to think deeply and use the experiences and actions of the late governor on national matters as a mirror and guide in shaping political and democratic behaviours in Nigeria.

Senator Abaribe said, “Governor Akeredolu has done his best as governor of Ondo State, as an astute legal practitioner, as President of the Nigerian Bar Association, and as a vocal political leader in Nigeria.

“It is now left for the living to ensure that we honour him by entrenching constitutionalism in governance that would advance democracy for the good of all in Nigeria.”
