A loyal and honest employee of President Muhammadu Buhari has died after serving him and his family for over 30 years.
The Presidency said in a statement just released in Abuja that Nalado Sandamu, better known as ‘Commander’, was an honest and good caretaker of the President.
He died at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Kano, on Monday.
The deceased worked at the President’s country home in Daura, Katsina State.
“I have lost a good and honest caretaker,’’ the President was quoted as mourning Sandamu.
Buhari added, “I have lost a prudent and a wonderful custodian who did so well taking care of my country home in Daura. May Allah bless his soul and give strength to the bereaved family to bear this irreparable loss, Ameen.”
The statement, which was signed by Nigeria’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, noted, “The President sent a delegation to the family of the bereaved in Sandamu Local Government Area, Katsina, comprising Senior Special Assistant, Domestic and Household Matters, Sarki Abba, Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu and State Chief of Protocol, Amb. Lawal Kazaure.
