President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday condoled with the family of the former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Farida Waziri, and friends of the former Nigerian Ambassador to Turkey, Senator Ajuji Waziri, who died on Monday.
Buhari also joined the diplomatic corps and the National Assembly in mourning the death of the former diplomat and lawmaker, whom he said, worked assiduously to improve the conditions of his community and the country.
Buhari, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said Waziri’s wise counsel, insight and forthrightness would be missed by his community and the entire country.
He also sympathized with his wife, Farida, the children and the government and people of Gombe State.
He prayed that the Almighty would grant his loved ones the fortitude to bear the loss.
