Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has commiserated with the family of late Prof. Micheal Ajomo, whose passing was announced recently.
In a statement, Obaseki said that while the family will miss his fatherly love, “his friends and Nigerians will miss the legal luminaryâ€™s wealth of knowledge and contributions to national development.”
Obaseki said â€œOn behalf of the people of Edo State, I commiserate with the family for the loss of Prof. Ajomo, who contributed immensely to our collective well-being through his important contributions to the development, study and practice of International Law in Nigeria.
â€œHe was a legal colossus and we would miss him dearly. I use this opportunity to console the family and pray that God grant them the fortitude to bear the loss,â€ Obaseki added.
Late Prof. Ajomo is former Dean, Faculty of Law, University of Lagos, (UNILAG) and former Director General, Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (NIALS), between 1988-1994.
