The All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Sen. Bola Tinubu, has commiserated with Sen. Magatakarda Wamakko, over the death of his brother, Alhaji Buba Wamakko.
In a condolence message to the former governor of Sokoto State on Tuesday, Tinubu described the late Wamakko, who died at the age of 66, as a “good community leader.”
While praying for the repose of the soul of the deceased, Tinubu also prayed Allah to comfort the wife and the children he left behind.
“Please accept my deepest sympathy and condolences over the passing, on Monday, of your younger brother, Alhaji Buba Wamakko, who died at the age of 66, during an illness.
“Losing a close relation like a brother can be painful and agonising, and l wish I can find adequate words to comfort you, my brother.
“As Muslims, we must accept his demise as the will of Allah.
“We must remain grateful to Allah that within the period he lived, he distinguished himself and made his impact felt.
“My prayer is that Allah, Subuhana Watahala, admits him into Aljana Fridaus,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the late Wamakko was a community leader and devout Muslim during his lifetime.
NAN also reports that he was turbaned as District Head of Gedawa in Wamakko Local Government area by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Saad Abubakar, on April 7, 2014.
