President Buhari loses official driver

President Muhammadu Buhari’s official driver, Master Warrant Officer Sa’idu Afaka, has died on Tuesday at the State House Clinic after a prolonged illness.

In a release signed by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, President Buhari commiserated 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 recalled that in 2016 the soldier, while on pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia, picked up a bag containing a large sum 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 prayed Almighty Allah to ‘‘bless the soul of the departed with an elevated place in heavens,’’ committing the family and friends to divine comfort and patience.
