President Bola Tinubu has reacted to the death of a former Interior Minister, Senator Maitama Yusuf.
Tinubu expressed deep sadness over the passing of Yusuf, who he said served Nigeria meritoriously.
The President, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media & Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, extended his deepest sympathy and condolences to Yusuf’s family and friends, as well as the government and people of Jigawa State.
He said, “A true believer in Nigeria’s unity and stability, Senator Maitama Yusuf contributed immensely to the socio-economic development of this country. In the public service, he was selfless.
“He was dedicated to effective service delivery in order to improve the lives of Nigerians. He served Nigeria meritoriously as the Honourable Minister in the Federal Ministries of Interior and Commerce before being elected into the Nigerian Senate by his people.”
“Nigerians will fondly remember and honour his memory, particularly for the courageous and pivotal role he played in countering attempts by anti-democratic forces to undermine the country’s democracy by seeking to extend the constitutional term limits of elected leaders,” Tinubu affirmed.
Tinubu prayed that Almighty Allah grants the soul of Yusuf rest.
