President Muhammadu Buhari condoles with the Ajekigbe family, the academia, and the medical professional, on the passage of renowned oncologist, Professor Aderemi Tajudeen Ajekigbe.
The deceased practiced for decades at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), rising to the headship of the Oncology and Radiology department.
Even at retirement, Prof Ajekigbe still lent his God-given intellect to research and advocacy of early detection of cancer, so that the scourge can be reduced in the country.
The President salutes the commitment to scholarship of the departed, which saw him first qualifying as an engineer, later as a pharmacist, and eventually as a medical doctor.
President Buhari prays that God will comfort those who mourn the departed cancer specialist, urging that his good works and research findings be documented for the good of humanity.
