I hope to walk again – Gani Fawehinmi’s son


Mohmmed Fawehinmi, son of late human rights activist and legal luminary, Gani Fawehinmi, said his top priority is to regain his health and start walking.

Mohammed, who took after his father and like the deceased, is a lawyer too, has been in wheelchair since 2003 following a fatal car crash he was involved in.

In an interview with The Sun, the 49-year-old revealed that he has given not up on walking, saying: “I want to worry about my health. I still believe that there’s a medical or spiritual answer to the medical condition that I’m battling with. I’ll need to get back on my feet first. I am a workaholic, that’s why I love going to courts.”              

He also told the paper of his hatred for Zamfara State governor, Abdulaziz Yari.

His word, “I hate governors like Yari… He should be stripped of everything he has stolen from the state. He collects security votes every month, yet he lives in Abuja. His state has the highest amount of killings in Nigeria, and he kept giving us useless excuses. It took Kadaria Ahmed to come up and call him out. That’s the same governor that told us every governor should have a private jet. What are you doing with a private jet?”
