Buhari mourns Ma­gaji Ab­dul­lahi

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Isi­aka Wak­ili

Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari has ex­pressed sad­ness over the death of a former deputy gov­er­nor of Kano State, Se­na­tor Ma­gaji Ab­dul­lahi, de­scrib­ing him as one of Nige­ria’s finest and re­sult-driven en­gi­neers of his time.

The Se­nior Spe­cial As­sis­tant to the Pres­i­dent on Me­dia and Pub­lic­ity, Mal­lam Garba Shehu, said in a state­ment yes­ter­day that Buhari’s mes­sage to the fam­ily, the govern­ment and peo­ple of Kano State was de­liv­ered by a fed­eral govern­ment del­e­ga­tion led by the Wa­ter Re­sources Min­is­ter, Su­laiman Adamu.

The del­e­ga­tion com­prised the Min­is­ter of State for Avi­a­tion Se­na­tor Hadi Sirika, the Ac­coun­tant-Gen­eral of the Fed­er­a­tion Ahmed Idris and Shehu him­self.

The pres­i­dent said un­der Ma­gaji’s ten­ure as head of the Wa­ter Re­sources and En­gi­neer­ing Con­struc­tion Agency (WRECA), Kano State en­joyed the best wa­ter sup­ply and availability on record.

He said the late Ma­gaji was pre­oc­cu­pied with pro­duc­ing prac­ti­cal re­sults rather than the­o­ries about his job, a qual­ity he noted, made him an out­stand­ing en­gi­neer who de­served a spe­cial place in the na­tion’s en­gi­neer­ing pro­fes­sion.

He said achiev­ing re­sults was the best advertisement for any man’s record in of­fice, adding that the late Ma­gaji’s no­table con­tri­bu­tions to the de­vel­op­ment of Kano State would not be for­got­ten.

Pres­i­dent Buhari prayed that Allah grant him eter­nal rest and a wor­thy place in par­adise.
