President Muhammadu Buhari has lost his nephew, Mr. Mutari Dauda, who is the younger brother of Mamman Daura.
Buhari, in a statement by his senior personal assistant, Garba Shehu, described Dauda’s death as an “irreparable loss.”
He consoled with the members of his extended family and Daura community, saying: “Let me use this opportunity to convey to you on behalf of myself and my family my deepest pains and sympathy for the loss of Mr. Mutari Dauda. Death is cruel and inevitable, and every soul must taste death someday.
“What we actually owe the dead are not tears but our prayers, because our tears can’t bring them back to life, so in this regard, my heart and humble prayers go out to all the immediate and extended families and the Daura’s community as a whole over this irreparable loss of their son.
“May Allah forgive his gentle soul and reward his goods deeds with aljanna. Amin” prayed Buhari.
