President Muhammadu Buhari has 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, Hon. Abdullahi Muhammad Wamakko.
The President, in a statement by his media aide, Garba Shehu, Sunday night, extended condolences to the leadership of the National Assembly, professional colleagues and the immediate family of the deceased, who had contributed immensely to the development of democracy.
President Buhari said he believed that Wamakko left at a time that his services were most desired by the country, describing him as a “gentle and uncontroversial politician.”
Buhari 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.”
President Buhari prayed Allah to bless the soul of the deceased, comfort his family and reward his good deeds.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
