The End of Mohammed Fawehinmi



The news of the demise of Mohammed Fawehinmi came on Wednesday 11 August 2021  like a thunderbolt.

Mohammed was the first child of Late Chief Gani Fawehinmi SAN. He first read and graduated in Business Administration before reading Law and becoming a Lawyer. He was a sportsman. In actual fact, he was a Sprinter.

I recalled that in the late eighties, his Dad, Chief Fawehinmi, was preparing him to participate in the Olympics. Unfortunately, he got involved in a motor accident which marked a turning point in his life as he became confined to a wheelchair.

Though immobilized, his socio-politico-economic mentalization remained one that could be said to be of high level attitude status.  He did not allow his precarious condition to dampen his spirit. He remained active politically and professionally.

Mohammed had a friendly and charming character. He was highly respectful and humble. As a legal practitioner, he was brilliant and innovative. As a political activist, he was moderate.

He has played his part in this planet and the Lord who called him home at this time knows best. No man chooses the time of his exit from this planet. May the heavens receive his soul in peace. I commiserate with the Chief Gani Fawehinmi family as well as the Gani Fawehinmi Chambers Alumni of which Mohammed was a member.
