The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has spoken on the death of former President Shehu Shagari.
The 93 year old Shagari died on Friday evening in an Abuja hospital.
Atiku, in his message, described the late Shagari as a teacher and a completely detribalised Nigerian.
His message read:
President Shehu Usman Shagari was a completely detribalized Nigerian. He served Nigeria from his youth to the evening of his life, as a teacher & moulder of minds and later as a leader and moulder of nations.
After his untimely overthrow from office, he continued to devote his time and effort to nation building through the elder statesmanly role he played, including during my time in office as Vice President. He will be greatly missed. May Almighty Allah grant him Aljannah Firdaus.
