The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the death of the Emir of Rano, Alhaji Tafida Abubakar.
In a statement sent to POLITICS NIGERIA, signed by a presidential aide, Garba Shehu, the president expressed sadness on the development.
The President joined the family and Rano Emirate in mourning the royal father, whose words of wisdom, nobility and decency will be sorely missed, especially at a time the government is relying on traditional rulers to sensitize citizens on directives for safety.
President Buhari urges his family and the Emirate to find solace in the good works of the deceased and ensure his legacies are carried on.
Buhari prayed that the almighty God will forgive the shortcomings of the Emir, remember his good works and grant his soul eternal rest.
