While describing the late octogenarian, who retired from the Nigerian Army in 1984, as “humble, hardworking, generous, disciplined and God-fearing”, the president lauded his patriotic services to his fatherland, community and humanity.
Buhari urged the governor and his siblings to keep alive the salutary values which their late father embodied.
The President prayed almighty God to console those who mourned the departed ex-serviceman and grant his soul rest. (NAN)
