Former President Goodluck Jonathan has described the late Sultan Ibrahim Dasuki as a nationalist and a patriot par excellence.

Mr. Jonathan made the remark in Sokoto on Thursday when he paid a condolence visit to the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III.

He said the late Mr. Dasuki worked and died as a peace maker and a bridge builder.

“He worked tirelessly to ensure lasting peace and unity in Nigeria, while without peace and unity there will be no development,” he said.

The former president further said that the demise of Mr. Dasuki was a national loss.

He said that his words of wisdom would continue to be remembered by all Nigerians.

Responding, the sultan commended Jonathan for the condolence visit, saying, “Allah gives and takes life”.

Mr. Abubakar further said that Jonathan’s condolence was for all Nigerians and not the people of Sokoto State alone.

The Deputy Governor of the state, Ahmed Aliyu, led Mr. Jonathan’s entourage to the sultan’s palace.
