Funeral: Aiyedatiwa Pays Tribute To Late Paul Akintelure



Governor of Ondo State, Hon. Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, has described the late Dr. Paul Akintelure as a man of integrity who made profound impact on his community.

Dr. Akintelure, a former APC governorship aspirant in the State and deputy governorship candidate of the defunct ACN in 2012, passed away on March 26, 2024, at the age of 61.

He was survived by a wife and four children.

At the funeral mass of the deceased on Friday at St. Pius Catholic Church in Igbotako, Okitipupa local government area, Governor Aiyedatiwa said the ceremony was a celebration of Akintelure’s remarkable life rather than a time for mourning.

The Governor lauded Akintelure’s exceptional contributions to the development of Igbotako, stressing his roles as a medical doctor, a community leader, and a committed political figure, whose impact extended beyond measure.

The governor said: “We are gathered here to honour and celebrate the life of Akintelure, a cherished son of Igbotako. While his passing brings us sorrow, we find solace in knowing that he is now in God’s embrace, as the scriptures remind us that what is precious in His eyes may cause us pain.

“Akintelure lived a commendable life, leaving a lasting impact. His commitment to saving lives and serving humanity is evident in the countless individuals he has touched. As a fellow member of the same political party, I extend my heartfelt condolences. May God grant comfort to his immediate family.”

In his sermon, Rev. Fr. Clement Odia urged attendees to emulate Akintelure’s legacy of compassion and generosity. He depicted Akintelure as a devoted family man and a selfless helper, advocating for the continuation of his noble principles and values by his family.

Representing the family, Dr. Akintade Akintelure expressed profound gratitude for the support received during the challenging period, while also soliciting prayers for the family’s fortitude.
