Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Two-time former military governor of then Bendel State (now Edo State and Delta State), Samuel Osaigbovo Ogbemudia, is dead at 84.
Ogbemudia, who said to have passed on at about 11 p.m. on Thursday, was appointed the military administrator of Mid-West State in September, 1967 to 1975, following the liberation of the State from the Biafran forces.
Years later, Ogbemudia was elected civilian governor of Bendel State, after winning the August 1983 gubernatorial election under the platform of the National Party of Nigeria (NPN).
More to come on Ogbemudia.
