President Muhammadu Buhari sends heartfelt condolences to the government and people of Gombe State as well as Gombe Emirate on the passing of Ajiyan Gombe and Senior District Head of Kwami Local Government Area, Alhaji Haruna Abdullahi.
The President joins them in mourning one of the longest traditional title holders in the Gombe Emirate, who spent over 53 years as District Head of Kwami.
The President has fond memories of the Ajiyan Gombe, an elder brother of Ambassador Ibrahim Yerima Abdullahi, a former Minister of Works and Education during his military administration as Head of State.
“He will be remembered as a leader who taught his people contentment, integrity and respect for humanity. For this and many godly virtues, he will be missed,” the President said.
Meanwhile, the President has also commiserated with the All Progressives Congress (APC) family in Borno State on the death of a chieftain of the party, Umar Kareto.
The President pays tribute to the many contributions and sacrifices of the late Kareto to the progress, peace and stability of Borno State as well the APC.
President Buhari prays almighty God to forgive the shortcomings of the deceased and grant the grieving families the fortitude to bear the irreparable losses.
