President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a message of condolence to the family, friends and associates of Dr. Simon Harry, the Statistician-General of the Federation, who passed away on Wednesday.


Beyond the immediate family and friends, Buhari also expressed his sympathy with the government and people of Plateau State on the loss of an illustrious citizen.


He noted that Dr Harry had exemplary contributions to the evolution of the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) and developmental planning of the country.


The President also paid tribute to the late Statistician-General who he said worked conscientiously with previous heads of the organisation in recent years, providing relevant data to government and making the NBS a point of reference on various issues affecting the country.


Buhari affirmed that with his appointment in August, 2021, Dr Harry ensured that the organisation, where he had put in three decades, continued to be relevant in taking crucial decisions in the country, urging colleagues in the field of data gathering and analysis, especially at the NBS, to take solace in the fact that having risen to the pinnacle of his career, the late Dr Harry put in his best in the service of the country.


He prayed that God will repose his soul and comfort the family in this time of grief.
