The President’s Senior SpecialAssistant on Media and Publicity, MalamGarbaShehu in a statement in Abuja on Monday, said the president condoled with his friend and onetime running mate via a telephone call.

President Buhari urged the cleric, who is also the General Overseer of Latter Rain Assembly, and the Bakare family to take solace in the fact that the late matriarch lived long enough to witness the enormous successes achieved by her children.

He called on the bereaved family to uphold the cherished ideals of community service, kindness and generosity associated with the matriarch of the Bakare family.
