The President also commiserated with the Royal Family and the Biu Emirate Council on the death of His Royal Highness who for 31 years had the privilege of leading the people of Biu with diligence and dedication.

In a press statement on Tuesday by the Spokesman to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari affirmed that the Emir who was a strong advocate for peace and development in the North East region demonstrated visionary leadership that was very evident to all, including his efforts to modernise Biu by supporting the establishment of educational institutions in the community.

The President notes that the Emir’s style of servant leadership for over three decades earned him the trust and respect of his community, contemporaries, and Nigerians from diverse political, social, and religious leanings.

He believes that the Emir’s good works will continue to be remembered and cherished in his community and the wider region of the North East, praying Almighty God to grant the soul of the departed eternal rest and comfort to the people of Biu during this time of mourning.
