President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the Government and people of Sokoto State over the passing away of a member of the House of Representatives, representing Kware/Wamakko Federal Constituency, Hon.  Abdullahi Muhammad.

The President extends condolences to the leadership of the National Assembly, professional colleagues and the immediate family of the deceased, who had contributed immensely to the development of democracy.

President Buhari stated that the lawmaker left 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 departed legislator, which he said “was one of his salient virtues” that would be really missed by the country, noting that “he gave encouragement to the younger generation to join politics and contribute their own quota to the country’s development.”

President Buhari prayed Allah to bless the soul of the deceased, comfort his family and reward his good deeds.
The President’s message was conveyed via statement released by his Spokesperson, Malam Garba Shehu.
