Buhari Mourns Okadigbo’s Son, Pharaoh
By Deji Elumoye
President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the family of the former President of the Senate, late Senator Chuba Okadigbo, on the death of their son, Pharaoh Okadigbo.
Reacting to the news of the death in a release on Sunday by his Media Adviser, Femi Adesina, President Buhari said it was very sad to lose such a promising young man with so much potentials and passion for youth involvement in the socio-political development of Nigeria.
He noted that the late Pharaoh at an early age keyed into the vision of a better Nigeria not just for the privileged but for all and sundry, which he (the President) shared with late Chuba Okadigbo, who was his running mate in the 2003 presidential election.
President Buhari added that the nation will miss a firm believer in the necessity for the people to work in collaboration with governments at all levels to achieve the better society we all wish for.
He prayed that God Almighty will comfort family, friends and associates, and repose the soul of the departed.
