President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with a former Senate Leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba, over the death of his wife, Amaka.

He also expressed sadness over the death of the first Professor of Veterinary Medicine in Northern Nigeria and a former Chairman of Bida Local Government in Niger State, Prof. Shehu Bida.

Persecondnews had reported that Amaka died in an auto crash on Friday in Ondo State.

Buhari’s condolence message was contained in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, titled “President Buhari commiserates with Senator Ndoma-Egba over death of wife.”

The statement read, “President Muhammadu Buhari extends sincere condolences to Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba and members of his family on the sudden and tragic death of his wife, Mrs Amaka Ndoma-Egba.

“The President says his thoughts and prayers are with them in their period of grief.

“He prays divine comfort for the entire family of Ndoma-Egba and peaceful repose of the soul of the departed.”

Buhari extended condolences to Bida’s family, government and people of Niger State, the Etsu Nupe, and the academic community on the death of “one of Nigeria’s leading scholars in the field of sciences.”

“President Buhari believes that Prof Bida’s pioneering role in sparking the interest of many Nigerians in the field of veterinary medicine, impactful research publications, and tenacity for knowledge-sharing, helped in grooming many quality experts in the field at home and beyond.

“The President adds that the late professor’s outstanding contributions to the development of science will be long remembered, hoping that his peers in the academic community will build on his legacy.

“He prays almighty Allah to forgive the shortcomings of the deceased and grant his family and friends the fortitude to bear the loss,” the statement said.
