“The President notes that the late Pharaoh at an early age keyed into the vision of a better Nigeria, not just for the privileged but for all and sundry, which he (the President) shared with the late Chuba, who was his running mate in the 2003 presidential election,” the statement reads.

“President Buhari adds that the nation will miss a firm believer in the necessity for the people to work in collaboration with governments at all levels to achieve the better society we all wish for.”

Buhari prayed that God will comfort the family, friends and associates of the deceased.
