Buhari mourn Saleh Michika

President Muhammadu Buhari has sent condolences to the government and people of Adamawa State on the passing on of its first civilian governor, Alhaji Abubakar Saleh Michika, on Saturday.

Buhari commiserated with the family, friends and professional colleagues of the astute administrator, political strategist and community developer, who he said worked variously with reputable international organisations before bringing his experience and skills to contribute to the development of Nigeria.

He commended Alhaji Michika’s strong sense of patriotism and commitment to national development which prompted him to alter his career path from the private sector, and take up public office by contesting and winning the gubernatorial elections in 1992.

“President Buhari believes the country will sorely miss the wise counsels, visionary leadership and disciplined lifestyle of the former Adamawa State governor”, his spokesman, Femi Adesina said in a statement.

“The President, who has sent a Federal Government delegation led by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha to commiserate with the family, prays that the almighty God will grant the soul of the departed eternal rest, and comfort his family.”
