Abuja (Sundiata Post) – President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday spoke with the wife of the late Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Mrs Fati Ibrahim Attahiru, saying late Army Chief was an outstanding soldier and an institution builder.
He described Attahiru as an outstanding soldier and an institution builder, who fought valiantly for Nigeria until he breathed his last.
He urged them to take solace in the surge of extraordinary feelings of emotions across regions, religions and tribes all over the country in appreciation of their sacrifices.
The president had earlier given directives to the Defence Headquarters and the Ministry of Defence to do everything a government could do to provide comfort and ease the hardships of the families of the deceased.
He prayed to almighty God to repose their souls and grant their families the fortitude to bear the losses.
Mrs Attahiru, on behalf of the rest of the families, thanked the president for the love and care he has shown to them.
Recall that the late Attahiru and 10 other officers died in a plane crash in Kaduna on Friday evening.(NAN)
