The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Sunday expressed shock over the death of the Emir of Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement titled “President Buhari mourns Emir of Zazzau,” said Buhari had written the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, on the death of the traditional ruler.

Shehu said in the condolence message to El-Rufai, the President condoled the government and people of the state.

He quoted Buhari as saying that “With the passing of Alhaji Shehu Idris, Nigeria has lost one of its longest reigning traditional monarchs whose contributions to the promotion of unity and peaceful coexistence among Nigerians cannot be forgotten for years to come.

“The Emir of Zazzau who ascended to the throne in 1975, had used his long reign to serve his people with dedication and identified with their aspirations at all times.”

The President prayed to Allah to forgive the late Emir and grant his family and subjects the fortitude to bear the loss.
