Mamman Daura makes first public appearance in a while – and it’s because of Mahmud Tukur

In one of his rare public appearances in 2021, President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew, Mamman Daura, visited Adamawa State over the death of Dr Mahmud Tukur, his bosom friend.

Aged 82, Tukur died at a hospital in Abuja on Friday.

In an obituary, Daily Trust had highlighted the bond between Tukur and Daura.

When he visited Governor Ahmadu Fintiri on Sunday, Daura described the late Tukur as a national icon and  who opened his doors to all Nigerians, irrespective of their creed.

Daura stated that Tukur was a man of personal character, intense knowledge, good humour, and a sterling example of a nationalist who was committed to the unity of Nigeria.

Fintiri while appreciating Daura for the show of love, noted that the late Tukur was committed to the service of his fatherland.

He added that his demise at this critical time of the nation’s growth and development will be difficult to deal with as he represented a united Nigeria.
