President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday mourned the passing of one of his members of staff, Buhari Nalado Sandamu.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
“I have lost a good and honest caretaker.
“I have lost a prudent and a wonderful custodian who did so well taking care of my country home in Daura. May Allah bless his soul and give strength to the bereaved family to bear this irreparable loss, Ameen,” President Buhari said.
He added that the late Sandamu served the President and his family for more than 30 years.
Buhari has since sent a delegation to the family of the bereaved in Sandamu Local Government Area, Katsina, comprising Senior Special Assistant, Domestic and Household Matters, Sarki Abba, Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu and State Chief of Protocol, Amb. Lawal Kazaure.
The President’s housekeeper, Saleh Yuguda, was also on the delegation that visited the family of the bereaved.
Sandamu, better known as “Commander,” died at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Kano on Monday.
