PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the family and friends of former Nigerian Ambassador to Turkey, Sen Ajuji Waziri, who passed away on Monday.
A statement issued by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Tuesday said Buhari joined the diplomatic corps and the National Assembly in mourning the demise of the former diplomat and lawmaker, who worked assiduously to improve the conditions of his community and the country.
It said as a public servant, who served in many capacities, the President extolled the humanity, integrity and purposefulness that Waziri brought into all his responsibilities, particularly in improving relations with Turkey, which has over the years become one Nigeria’s strong allies in the international community.
It said the President believes that Waziri’s wise counsels, insight and forthrightness would be sorely missed by his community and the entire country.
Buhari sympathizes with his wife, former EFCC boss, Farida Waziri, the children, and the government and people of Gombe State.
The President prayed that the almighty God will receive the soul of the departed and grant his loved ones the fortitude to bear the loss.
