Former President Muhammadu Buhari has offered his condolences following the death of a famous Islamic preacher, Sheikh Abubakar Giro Argungu.
Buhari, in a statement Thursday by his media aide, Malam Garba Shehu, described his passing away as a major loss for Nigeria and the Muslim world as a whole.
“Condolences to his family and admirers,” said the former President.
“Sheikh Giro was a towering figure in our national life. Throughout his life, he stood for Islamic values and demonstrated his commitment to good society through his utterances and his actions. May Allah repose his soul and grant him Jannatul-Firdaus.”
