President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the family of Alhaji Ahmadu Gaada, his former Chief Security Officer as Military Head of State in the 1980s.
In a condolence message by his spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, on Wednesday in Abuja, the president said he was saddened to hear the demise of Gadda.
Buhari described the deceased as a diligent and agile security officer who served him with excellence and astuteness.
“He worked in the national interest rather than self-interest. He will be remembered as an exemplary security officer and most of all, a patriotic citizen who placed the nation above himself.
“Ahmadu’s death is a personal and irreplaceable loss to me. May Allah rests his soul in peace and give enough strength to the bereaved family members,” he prayed.
