Former diplomat and lawmaker, Ajuji Waziri.

President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the family of former Nigerian Ambassador to Turkey, Ajuji Waziri, who died on Monday.

Ajuji Waziri was the husband to former EFCC boss, Farida Waziri.

The President said the deceased worked assiduously to improve the conditions of his community and Nigeria.

He said: “As a public servant, who served in many capacities, we extol the humanity, integrity and purposefulness that Waziri brought into all his responsibilities, particularly in improving relations with Turkey, which has over the years become one of Nigeria’s strong allies in the international community.”

President Buhari believes that Waziri’s wise counsels, insight and forthrightness would be sorely missed by his community and the entire country.

Waziri,who hails from Gombe state is survived by wife Farida Waziri and the children.
