President Muhammadu Buhari said he is profoundly saddened to learn of the tragic accident that took the life of Senator John Shagaya. Buhari however offered his heartfelt condolences to the Shagaya family, friends, the Government and people of Plateau State on the painful passing of their illustrious son.
Buhari, in a statement issued on Sunday by his Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said late Shagaya’s legacies will live on in the patriotic work he did as a military officer, who rose to the position of a General, and a distinguished Senator of the Federal Republic that ably represented the Plateau Southern zone.
“General Shagaya brought his deep convictions and discipline to national, regional and community assignments and was ready to always offer his best to the development and stability of the country”, Buhari said.
President Buhari prayed that God Almighty will comfort all who mourn him and grant his soul eternal rest.
