Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with government and people of Egypt over Mr Mubarak’s death.
“Mr Buhari commiserated with family, friends and associates of the former military pilot, who ruled the country for more than 29 years, pursuing peace within the country, and with neighbouring countries, and leaving a legacy of stability and loyalty to the flag,” Mr Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said in a statement.
“As a public servant, President Buhari believes Mubarak’s sacrifices for his country, and the continent, will always be remembered.”
