Abiodun empathises with Sultan over brother’s demise
Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has commiserated with the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III, over the demise of his brother, the Ciroman Sokoto, Buhari Abubakar III
Abubakar, who died last Thursday at the age of 67, is survived by two wives and many children.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, yesterday, the governor described the late Ciroman Sokoto as an astute administrator, erudite academic and religious leader.
Abiodun, who recalled how the late lecturer of Uthman Danfodio University, Sokoto, performed diligently when he was appointed as a commissioner in 1996 by a military administration, said Sokoto and indeed Nigeria would miss the selfless service the deceased was known for while alive.
The governor urged the Sultan, the people and government of Sokoto to take solace in the fact that life of the late Ciroman Sokoto was filled with service to God and humanity.
