President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over the demise of Hajiya A’isha Rufa’i.
Mrs Rufa’i was the Secretary/Director of the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Board of the Ministry of Interior, CDCFIB.
The Rufa’i received the commendation of the Minister of Interior for her “commitment and dedication to duty,” describing her as “an example” while urging the Federal Civil Service to “assign her a higher responsibility” when the Minister recommissioned the CDCFIB headquarters upon its redesign and rehabilitation by the late Secretary.
Expressing his deep sorrow and grief, President Buhari recalled the contribution of the deceased to the Federal Civil Service as an organiser and effective administrator in all her previous roles.
He prayed for the repose of her soul and fortitude for her larger family members in Kano to bear the loss.
