State House Press Release: President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has described the death of First Republic Senator and Minister of Health, Dr. Moses Adekoyejo Majekodunmi, as a great loss to the nation. The President said that Dr.
Majekodunmi's wisdom, immense patriotism, dedication to work, commitment to national service and excellence will undoubtedly be sorely missed by his family, friends, associates and the whole country.
President Jonathan noted that late Dr. Majekodunmi distinguished himself not only during his brief sojourn as a federal minister and Administrator of the old Western Region, but also as one of the pioneers of high quality private health care services in Nigeria.
The President paid tribute to Dr. Majekodunmi’s uncommon courage and willingness to answer the call to national service even at a period of political uncertainty.
He extended sincere condolences to members of the Majekodunmi family and urged them to take solace in the fact that the eminent physician lived to a grand old age and has bequeathed worthy legacies to his offspring and the nation.
President Jonathan prayed that Almighty God will grant the soul of the elder statesman peaceful rest.
