Ondo State’s First Lady, Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu has confirmed that the Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, would soon return from his medical vacation.
Akeredolu’s wife, who quoted a line from R. Kelly song “the storm is over now and we are seeing the sunshine”, spoke concerning her husband’s return saying, “All will end in praise”.
This is in tandem with her recent declaration of her husband’s health and his hinted return, as she had shared pictures of the recuperating Governor on his birthday three weeks ago via her Facebook page, saying, “Victory for us”.
According to The Nation, she said this in her address at the opening of the 2023 BEMORE summer boot camp for 300 young girls in the state.
She said, “It is another great time to formally welcome our new Bemore Girls into the big and beautiful Bemore family where talents are discovered and nurtured, skills are instilled; where girls are intentionally exposed to life-changing experiences and where we bring out the best in them.
“In the last six years, I have treasured this moment and its bounty harvests it affords me the chance to yearly re-give myself to a new set of sterling Nigerian girls through this incredible
“This, for me, is an exceptional opportunity to build these promising girls into confident, competent and worthy women who, in the fullness of time, will rewrite the narrative around womanhood.”
Recall that Ondo Acting Governor, Lucky Ayedatiwa, who also confirmed that the Governor would soon return, decried BEMORE as the most potent machinery to impact the girl child.
Ayedatiwa said it turned out to be a successful idea to uplift females.
He praised the Ondo First Lady for what he termed a radical vision to transform the girl child and give them hope.
A former beneficiary of the programme, Christians Madu, said she recently got a N4m contract to install a solar power system after her training at BEMORE camp.
