President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday extended his condolences to the Dasuki family, the government and people of Sokoto State on the death of the 18th Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Ibrahim Dasuki.
According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President also commiserated with the Jama’atul Nasril Islam and the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs over the death of the traditional ruler.
He noted that Dasuki devoted his life and tenure of office to the promotion of peaceful coexistence and tolerance among diverse ethnic groups in Nigeria.
He described the deceased as one of Nigeria’s most powerful voices for peace and unity in diversity, who diligently kept faith with the virtues of the Sardauna whom he had served as a public servant.
The statement read, “Apart from modernising the traditional institution to bring it in tune with changing times, President Buhari believes that the late Ibrahim Dasuki, who died on Monday at the age of 93, will be long remembered for his role in the creation of the present local government system in the country.
“The President pays tribute to his contribution to national peace and development, particularly his significant role in producing the report that gave birth to the current local government councils.
“President Buhari prays that Almighty Allah will comfort the family of his Eminence, grant the deceased eternal rest and reward his good virtues with Paradise.”
