President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, has commiserated with President Muhammadu Buhari over the death of two members of his extended family – Hajiya Halima Dauda and Hajiya Ai’sha Mamman.
Saraki in a statement issued by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Mr Yusuph Olaniyonu, also condoled with Buhari’s uncle, Malam Mamman Daura over the death of his younger sister.
“My family and I share with Mr President and his entire family in this moment of grief,” Saraki said.
“I urge Mr President to be heartened and see the twin death as the will of Almighty Allah.
“The death of a family member is often traumatic. It is much more unbearable when one loses two family members at short interval.
“May God grant Mr President and his entire family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.”
Saraki also prayed that Allah should grant the souls of the departed places among the righteous ones in Aljannah Firdaus.
