President Muhammadu Buhari has sent condolences to the government and people of Adamawa State on the passing away of its first civilian Governor, Abubakar Saleh Michika.
He commiserated with the family, friends and professional colleagues of the astute administrator, political strategist and community developer, who worked variously with reputable international organisations before bringing his experience and skills to contribute to the development of Nigeria.
The President commended Michika’s strong sense of patriotism and commitment to national development which prompted him to alter his career path from the private sector, and take up public office by contesting and winning the gubernatorial elections in 1992.
President Buhari believes the country will miss the wise counsel, visionary leadership and disciplined lifestyle of the former Adamawa State Governor.
The President has sent a Federal Government delegation to Adamawa, led by the Secretary to the Government, Mr Boss Mustapha.
