Senate President, Bukola Saraki

Senate President Bukola Saraki has described the death of the former military governor of the defunct Midwestern State, Brig-Gen Samuel Ogbemudia as a colossal loss to the country, especially coming at a time  Nigerians are still mourning the demise of another elder statesman and former governor of the defunct Western Region, General Robert Adeyinka Adebayo.

He commiserated with the Ogbemudia’s family, the government and people of Edo and Delta States and Nigerians in general over the incident.

He noted that Ogbemudia’s death has robbed the entire country of an intelligent officer, dynamic administrator, focused gentleman and a leader par excellence, who served his country and people meritoriously.


“Ogbemudia was a man of the people. His humility and courage stood him shoulder high above many of his contemporaries.”

    The most striking lesson is that only your legacy lives after you. A Saudi saying goes thus” Any money you do NOT spend does not belong to you”! Our politicians that go after unfathomable wealth in the face of poverty of epidemic proportion, are only pouring hot coal upon themselves but on their generations unborn! Ogbemudia will be forever remembered for his quest for development for the old Mid-West (Bendel) State! May his soul rest in Peace.
