President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday commiserated with the government and people of Sokoto State over the death of a member of the House of Representatives, representing Kware/Wamakko Federal Constituency, Abdullahi Wamakko.
According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President extended condolences to the leadership of the National Assembly, professional colleagues and the immediate family of the deceased, who he said had contributed immensely to the development of democracy.
Buhari expressed the belief that Wamakko died at a time that his services were most desired by the country, describing him as a “gentle and uncontroversial politician.”
The President extolled the humility of the deceased which he said “was one of his salient virtues” that would be really missed by the country.
He noted that Wamakko “gave encouragement to the younger generation to join politics and contribute their own quota to the country’s development.”
Buhari prayed Allah to bless the soul of the deceased, comfort his family and reward his good deeds.
