Dr Ogbemudia who said his late father was his Role Model also said, “I dedicate these honours to my late father, who was my best friend. I love Baba (as I used to call him) to my bones marrow and deep down to the nucleus of the core of my innermost heart. I only wish he is alive today to see his son that he loved so much and was highly proud of.”
