President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday 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, Abdullahi Muhammad Wamakko.

In a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity Mr. Garba Shehu, the President also condoled with the leadership of the National Assembly, professional colleagues and the immediate family of the deceased, who had contributed immensely to the development of democracy.

The President said the deceased left at a time that his services were most desired by the country, describing him as a “gentle and uncontroversial politician.”

He also extolled the humility of the departed lawmaker, which he said “was one of his salient virtues” that would be really missed by the country, noting that Wamakko “gave encouragement to the younger generation to join politics and contribute their own quota to the country’s development.”

He prayed that the almighty Allah would bless the soul of the deceased, comfort his family and reward his good deeds.
