Wife of the Ondo State Governor, Mrs Betty Akeredolu, has suspended activities lined up for her forthcoming 70th birthday celebration.
The postponement is believed to be a response to the criticisms the birthday celebration has elicited.
Betty Akeredolu in a post via his Twitter handle on Sunday, said the suspension was a result of circumstances beyond her control.
“Hello Family and Friends. This is to inform you that all activities lined up to mark my 70th birthday are hereby suspended till further notice due to unforeseen circumstances beyond my control. Sorry for any inconvenience caused by this development.
“Nevertheless, be assured that I will be celebrated in style upon my return. Thank you for your understanding. I remain Arabinrin a.k.a Ada Owere I,” she tweeted.
In another Twitter post accompanied by a photo of her birthday flyer, she said that as long as there is life, ‘Owambe’ (party) can come at any time.
Recall that Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu had on June 7, 2023 embarked on a medical vacation.
