President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with government and people of Kaduna State over the passing of Emir of Jere, Dr Sa’ad Usman, urging them to find solace in his good works during his sojourn on earth, particularly for the indigenes.
The President in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, identified with family members, friends and associates of the traditional ruler, who served the country extensively as a public servant, including working as Secretary to the Government of Kaduna State.
Adesina said President Buhari joined the Kaduna Traditional Council in mourning the deceased, knowing that his wise contributions would be sorely missed.
He prayed that the almighty God would receive the soul of the departed, and comfort the family he left behind.
The emir, who had been battling with an ailment after he sustained injuries from misunderstanding with some locals, died on Wednesday.
