The presidency Tuesday morning revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari spoke to former Head of Service of the Federation, Dr. Adamu Fika, Wazirin Fika.
Buhari in the telephone chat expressed his sadness over the death of his wife, Hajiya Tasallah Fika.
This was contained in a statement by his Special assistant on media and publicity, Garba Shehu.
President Buhari said the loss of such a devoted wife of many years was particularly a painful and challenging moment in the life of any husband.
Buhari explained that as a family man himself, he understood the depth of pain Dr. Fika was going through at this time, “having lost a great and invaluable companion of many years and that the deceased was one of the most devoted wives who was the pride of the nuclear family.”
While praying to Allah to grant the deceased eternal rest in peace, the President also wished Dr. Fika the fortitude to bear this enormous loss.
Recall that Buhari made similar phone call to Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung who lost his wife recently.
