The eldest son of late Gen. Sam Ogbemudia, Sam Ogbemudia Jr has described late chief Tony Anenih as a genius in all aspects of life.
Ogbemudia Jr, whose father was a close political associate of Anenih stated this in an interview with journalists in Benin.
According to him, “the man was a genius. When you talk of politics, business and in all aspects of life, Anenih was everywhere.
“In politics, it is reasons and results. Reasons don’t count and he was always getting the results politically. Politics is the same all over the world. To get results, you have to work with the good, the bad and the ugly and he was always getting the results politically.
“We are going to miss him as a father, a family man and as a leader from the South-South Zone. I remember how himself and my father worked together. They were friends and brothers. The two of them were like Siamese twins”.
On the planned state burial for Anenih by Edo state government, Ogbemudia commended Governor Godwin Obaseki for the recognition given to the “political icon of all time”.
“We should appreciate people that made Edo state to be known”.
