Buhari calls Gowon, consoles him on sister’s death


President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday commiserated with former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon (retd), over the death of his younger sister, Kande Martha Audu.

The President, who called from London, extended his deepest condolences to Gowon and his family, urging them to take solace in the fact that Mrs. Audu lived a worthy and exemplary life.

Buhari, in a statement issued on Monday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said “death is an inevitable end that must come to all mortals, and we must keep praying and working to ensure that we live a life that pleases our Creator and benefits humanity.”

He also prayed that God will comfort the grieving family and grant rest to the soul of the deceased.

Gowon, who thanked President Buhari for the commiserations, assured him that he will not relent in praying for the unity and progress of the country.

He told him that Nigerians are also praying for his quick recovery.
