Buhari mourns elder statesman Ahmed Joda

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has paid tribute to pioneer civil servant and statesman, Ahmed Joda, who died after a prolonged illness in his hometown, Yola, Adamawa State.

Buhari’s condolence message was contained in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, titled ‘President Buhari pays tribute to Ahmed Joda, calls him a hero for all Nigerians.’

Buhari, who described Joda as the last surviving member of Governor Hassan Usman’s Northern Nigeria cabinet, highlighted his “monumental contributions to Nigeria’s unity and progress,” from the birth of the nation until his death, saying that “his lofty ideals will continue to motivate millions across the nation.’’

“We will not forget his sacrifices,” he added.

The President also noted that the late “Super Permanent Secretary” distinguished himself as a “remarkable scholar, journalist, intellectual, public servant and farmer.’’

Buhari called Joda “a hero for all Nigerians” who, even in death, “will continue to inspire every generation to move forward with love, brotherhood and harmony.

The Nigerian leader therefore, prayed that Allah accepts his good deeds and grant fortitude to those he left behind in his family, Adamawa Emirate Council and entire people of the state to bear the loss.
