President Muhammadu Buhari commiserates with members of the medical profession, the Delta State government, and the Sowho family on the passage of foremost medical doctor, Olorogun Ebiuwhe Joseph Sowho aged 81.

Dr Sowho, the President says, left his footprints on the sands of time, as an accomplished professional who practised medicine for over 52 years.

After training in Germany, the deceased was medical doctor to the then Green Eagles (now Super Eagles) in the 1970s and '80s, and also founded the well-known Ethiope Clinic Group in Lagos and Sapele, Delta State, respectively.

Dr Sowho ventured into active politics, and was elected twice as member of the House of Representatives in the Second Republic.

President Buhari says the departed deftly combined medical practice, sports, politics, and service to his people in an admirable way, and posterity would remember him as a man of many parts, who also excelled in all.

He prays that the family and all those who survive Dr Sowho would be comforted, and take solace in the fact that their patriarch lived a life worthy of emulation.
