The last time President Tinubu attended similar funeral service was for Aketi mother’s  burial on 22 November 2022 in the same church.  Many top government officials and captain of industry will grace the occasion.

Aketi was a staunch member of Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion. He had used his influence to bless the church in every capacity to help in the spread of the gospel.

The host Bishop Rt Revd Dr Stephen Ayodeji Fagbemi is putting finishes touches for a seamless service. Until his death  Aketi was the Chancellor of Diocese of Owo.

The legal luminaries are not left out as the President of the  Nigeria Bar Association  Yakubu Maikyau will be at the head of lawyers to the service.

After the service, his body will move for interment, which is strictly for immediate family members. There will be a reception at Mydas Hotel and Resort, Ikare Road,  by 1 pm.
