Timothy Choji, Abuja


President Muhammadu Buhari has sent condolences to the government and people of Zimbabwe on behalf of the Nigerian Government, over the passing of the founding father and former President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, who died at the age of 95.

The President commiserates with family members, friends and political associates of the political activist who fought for the independence of the country from colonial rule, and lived most of his life in public service.

President Buhari believes Mugabe’s sacrifices, especially in struggling for the political and economic emancipation of his people, will always be remembered by posterity.

He prays that the Almighty God will grant the soul of the former president rest and comfort his loved ones.
