*She is God-sent to Ondo people
By Oluwole Francis
Arabinrin Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu has earned praises and commendation from a sports and youth leader in Ondo state, Blessing Adebowale Akinlosotu for the wonderful initiative of the Akure tennis clinic which is ongoing in the state capital.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) member singled out the First Lady for not only the sports initiative but her youth and female oriented programmes.
As for me, all I can say is that she is a most unique First Lady. Her contributions has been able to endear the citizens of the state to appreciate her husband’s administration. If only other First Ladies can be as proactive as her, then, I would have been able to say we are closer to our God-given leadership position.
Akinlosotu added that, I have never imagined in my life I would have the singular opportunity to see the arrays of super stars who are conducting the clinic in one spot. These are people I have been hearing their names and exploits for yore.
You cannot seem to understand finding in one venue the likes of our own Rolake Olagbegi-Kasim, Mary Onyali and Nduka Odizor.
That alone is a major feat. The children who will have the privilege to take pictures with these sports icons will forever be appreciative to Arabinrin Akeredolu when they grow into the various sports in years to come.
My joy was more manifest when I had a sneak preview to the greater sports project. The total number of Ondo youths to be benefitted on the long run, both in urban and the rural areas is thrilling, said the light complexioned Akinlosotu.
She is God-sent to the people of Ondo state. We thank her eagle vision, strength of character and strong will to do all these things despite the hard economic terrain. Ironically, she does all her things as private initiatives. She does not seek or think because her husband is the governor and take from the scarce public till.
