President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday condoled with the government and people of Nasawara state over the death of the Emir of Nasarawa, Alhaji Hassan Ahmed Abubakar II.

In a condolence message, the President also sympathised with the family of the deceased and Nasarawa Emirate Council on the demise of the first class traditional ruler.

He said the late Emir would be long remembered and honoured as an advocate for peace, dialogue and reconciliation; and a firm believer that a better future awaits Nigeria.

The President said the best way for friends, close associates and subjects of the monarch to sustain his legacy is to abhor the things that create divisions in our midst and instead promote tolerance, love and understanding for one another, as a path to national reconciliation and development.

He prayed that Almighty Allah would receive Alhaji Abubakar’s soul and grant his people a worthy successor.
