All Progressives Congress 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 he was not a politician.
Ore Falomo died early Saturday morning in Lagos after an illness.
In a statement by his media office on Saturday in Abuja, 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 no 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 a rather advanced age and that he left behind good deeds and good children to continue to live after him.
“Dr. Falomo lived and practised in Lagos where his clinic is located, he would be deeply missed by all those who came in contact with him because of his good nature. 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.
“May his soul rest in the bosom of the Lord. May God grant his family the courage to live through his passing and the strength to continue with his good deeds.”
In another development, Tinubu, last night wrote to celebrate Alhaji Mamman Daura as he turned 80, saying that Daura, who is President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew, is a resourceful pillar of support for the president.
He also described Daura a study in integrity, humility and discipline.
In a letter of felicitation and prayer to the veteran journalist and renowned entrepreneur, which he personally signed, Asiwaju Tinubu said: “I write to join you, your family, friends and associates in thanking God Almighty who has made it possible for you to attain this milestone age.
“At 80, you are of sound mind, sound health, in high spirit and remain as brilliant, radiant and quick-witted as you have always been. Alihamudulilai. We are grateful to Almighty Allah for this and we pray for many more years for you.
“Your life is a study in high integrity, humility and discipline. An extremely private person who hardly talks about himself, your accomplishments, however, speak highly of you.
You are a reputable veteran journalist, successful entrepreneur, a nationalist and an Islamic faithful who has made important contributions to this country. Indeed, you have done a lot for our country.
“A man of great character, you have been a resourceful pillar of support for our president, Muhammadu Buhari. Many have rightfully described you as imbued with immense talents, your character, however, remains an inspiration to me in particular.
“Our country is lucky to have you at this particular time. I’m highly honoured and privileged to know you because knowing you is a wonderful thing.
“As you age gracefully, we pray that Allah continue to keep you in good health and continue to grant you His blessings.
At 80, my prayer for you is as follows:
“We pray that Allah in His Infinite mercy continue to support you, bless your family and all the things you cherished.
For the Almighty Allah says in Qur’an 93 Verse 3-5 thus:
“Your Lord has not abandoned you nor detested you,
“And the Hereafter will be better for you than the first life.
And your Lord is going to give you and you will be satisfied”.
