According to the Nigerian Tribune, Betty Akeredolu, a native of Imo State in the nation’s southeast geopolitical zone, said as much on Friday during her husband’s memorial service.

The burial service was attended by the Vice President of Nigeria, Kashim Ibrahim Shettima, Senate President, Senator Godswill Obot Akpabio, Senate Leader, Michael Opeyemi Bamidele, Ekiti State Governor, Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji, former House of Representatives member, Hon. Bimbo Daramola and many other influential Nigerians.

Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu said; “You were religious and wore your faith on your sleeves. I’m not. With no apologies. You were frustrated. Yet, we managed to work it out by harnessing our communication skills.”

She added; “You came to terms with my position on religion and respected my choice of pragmatism.
