President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday expressed sadness over the death of a former Executive Director of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Rotimi Fashakin.
Buhari, in a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, said: “As a former spokesperson of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) party, I’m proud to put it on record that Fashakin was one of the most dedicated and hardworking party officials that I had ever known and related with.”
Buhari, who recalled his relationship with Fashakin in the CPC, said he had also given a good account of himself, discharging every responsibility with amazing skill and competence.
“The late Fashakin was an outstanding loyalist who would stand by you through thick and thin without ever complaining. These are rare virtues among our politicians. May God bless his gentle soul and forgive his shortcomings and grant his family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss,” he said.
