President Muhammadu Buhari has extended his condolences to the Ogbemudia family,and the government and people of Edo State on the death of Dr. Samuel Ogbemudia, a former‎ governor of the defunct Midwest region and old Bendel State.

The President joined them and other admirers in mourning the elder statesman, who diligently served the country with courage and dedication at crucial moments in its history, both as military governor and a democratically elected civilian governor.

Buhari, according to a statement on Friday , said 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.

In the statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President recalled the unique role Ogbemudia played in the country’s return to civilian rule in 1999 and trusts that, as a tireless advocate for equity, he 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.

Buhari also prayed God to comfort all who mourn the late Ogbemudia and grant his soul eternal rest.
