Death has again come knocking at the Presidential Villa in Abuja as one of the aides of the President’s family passed on.
The First Lady, Aisha Buhari and members of her staff were thrown into mourning following the death of her protocol officer, Alhaji Sani Yekini.
Mrs. Buhari expressed her deepest sympathy to the family of Alhaji Yekini on her Twitter handle on Wednesday in Abuja.
“On behalf of my family and entire staff of my office, I wish to condole the family of Mr. Sani Yekini, a protocol officer in my office who died earlier today, may Allah grant him Jannatul Firdaus,” she said.
She described Yekini, who died after a protracted illness, as a committed, dedicated and courageous staff.
“Mr. Yekini served in my office for 4 years, he was down with diabetes and lost the battle today, He was a very committed, dedicated and courageous staff,” she said.
The First Lady, therefore, prayed to almighty Allah to grant the deceased Paradise and give his family the fortitude to bear the lost.
