In a statement signed by Femi Adesina, his Spokesman, Buhari condoled with family, friends and professional colleagues of the former NNPC boss.

The statement added that, “The President also commiserates with government and people of Bauchi State, management and staff of NNPC over the passing of the former GMD, who worked very hard to initiate reforms in virtually all departments of the corporation, bringing it up to speed with global trends and best practices.
