Master Warrant Officer, Saidu Afaka.
President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the family of his official driver, Master Warrant Officer Sa’idu Afaka over his death.
A statement by the Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, says Master Warrant Officer Afaka, died at the State House Clinic on Tuesday after a prolonged illness.
President Buhari, who also commiserates with the government and people of Kaduna State, described the late Afaka as an honest, capable, and reliable person, who handled his job with utmost care and responsibility.
The President recalls that in 2016 the soldier, while on pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia, stumbled over a bag containing a large number of foreign currencies and turned it over to the National Hajj Commission, an action which earned him praises from the Saudi and Nigerian authorities.
President Buhari prays Almighty Allah to bless the soul of the departed with an elevated place in heaven, committing the family and friends to divine comfort and patience.
