President Muhammadu Buhari has extended his condolences to family, people and government of Edo state over the death of defunct Midwest region and old Bendel State, ex-military governor, Samuel Ogbemudia.
In a statement released on Friday by president Special Adviser on media, Femi Adesina, stated that the Buhari joined the people other admirers in mourning the elder statesman.
He said that Ogbemudia diligently served the country with courage and dedication at crucial moments in her history both as military governor and a democratically elected civilian governor.
The President believes that the late Ogbemudia, who had a distinguished career as a military officer, administrator and Federal Minister, has left an impressive legacy of hardwork, discipline and commitment to communal, state, regional and national development.
Buhari also recalled the unique role of the elder statesman in the nation’s return to civilian rule in 1999 and trusts that, as a tireless advocate for equity, Ogbemudia would be long remembered and honoured for his dedication to the advancement of his people, especially in the fields of education, social welfare and infrastructure.
