Ore Falomo identified with struggle for better Nigeria, says Tinubu
All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has described Dr. Ore Falomo, the late personal doctor of late Chief MKO Abiola, as a physician and activist, who identified with the agitation for a better Nigeria, though not a politician.
In a statement, the former Lagos governor said: “I knew Dr. Ore Falomo very well as a physician and an activist. Though he was late Bashorun MKO’s personal physician, he was part of the struggle for the revalidation of June 12.
“He was not a politician, but he identified with us. He identified with our agitation for a better and progressive Nigeria. He was one of us. He participated in Abiola’s political struggles and also felt in his pains. He was one of those who saw Abiola last, some two weeks to his eventual death.
“His death is a loss to the country, to the medical profession and to the progressives family. But we must thank God that he lived to rather advanced age and that he left behind good deeds and good children to continue to live after him.
“I commiserate with his family, relations, friends and associates. I mourn with the medical confraternity. I mourn with Governors Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Dapo Abiodun and the government and people of Lagos and Ogun states.”
