Senate president, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, received the news of the death of the former military governor of the defunct Midwestern state, brigadier general Samuel Ogbemudia with shock.
In a statement signed by his special adviser on media and publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, Saraki described Ogbemudia’s death 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 commensurate 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.
He prayed god to grant the departed soul eternal rest and his family and loved ones the grace to bear the great loss.
