The National Leader of the ruling party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Saturday, mourned the death of Dr Ore Falomo, the personal doctor of late Chief MKO Abiola.
Tinubu, in his statement through his spokesman, Tunde Rahman, described the late doctor as a physician turned activist who supported a better Nigeria despite the fact that he was not a politician.
Falomo died early Saturday morning in Lagos after a brief illness.
“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 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,” Tinubu said.
Plans are said to be underway by his family to give him a befitting burial
