President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the Government and people of Sokoto State over the passing away of a member of the House of Representatives, representing Kware/Wamakko Federal Constituency, Hon. Abdullahi Muhammad Wamakko.
According to a statement by presidential spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, Buhari extended condolences to the leadership of the National Assembly, professional colleagues and the immediate family of the deceased, who he said had contributed immensely to the development of democracy.
President Buhari believes that Wamakko left at a time that his services were most desired by the country, describing him as a “gentle and uncontroversial politician”.
