President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with family of the oldest surviving soldier of the Nigerian Army and World War 11 Veteran, Pa Adama Aduku, who passed on at  the age of 101, describing him as a soldier’s soldier and an epitome of honour.

The President commiserated with friends and associates of the war veteran and Kogi State government on the loss, believing that the virtues of hard work and loyalty to the flag that he lived for will continue to be promoted.

President Buhari commends Aduku’s strong spirit and commitment to statehood, especially for actively participating in the 2019 Nigerian Army Day celebration and other activities of the Nigerian Legion.

The President prays that the almighty God will receive the soul of the departed, and comfort his family.
