The widow of the late former Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, Mrs. Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, has reportedly remarried.

Betty was reportedly handed over to
her late husband’s younger brother, Professor Wole Akeredolu.
The decision was made by the Emeabiam Community in Owerri West Local Government Area of Imo State.
The ceremony reached its climax when the Umuegeolu kindred formally handed Betty over to Professor Wole Akeredolu, indicating the family’s desire to continue having her within their fold after her husband’s demise.

Before this symbolic gesture, customary offerings of kola nuts, palm wine, and a she-goat were presented to the Umuegeolu kindred by the Akeredolus, adhering to tradition.

In response, Professor Wole Akeredolu expressed gratitude to the Umuegeolu kindred and the entire Emeabiam Community for their hospitality.
He affirmed the Akeredolu family’s commitment to continue caring for Betty, acknowledging the support received during the mourning period and the interment ceremony held in Owo.

The Mgbafu Mkpe ceremony, a traditional Igbo practice, signifies the transition of a widow back to her husband’s family following his passing. It involves the mutual agreement between both families, with rituals performed accordingly.
