President Muhammadu Buhari has sent condolences to family and friends of the late Air Vice Marshal Olufunsho Martins (rtd).

President Buhari commiserated with all the professional, business and political associates “of the valiant air officer, who served meritoriously in the military, and retired to continue serving the nation through advocacy, counselling and philanthropy.”

According to a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, the President urged Martins’ family to find comfort in the legacies of integrity, discipline and charity that he left behind, and the many lives he touched while on earth.

“As a former ally, President Buhari commends the unalloyed patriotism of the late Air Vice Marshal, who worked assiduously to ensure that only men of integrity got into leadership positions.

The President prays that God will grant the soul of the departed rest, and comfort the family he left behind,” the statement read in part.
