President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed “heart-felt” sadness over the death of Omowunmi Akande, wife of the founding chairman of the governing All Progressives Congress, APC.

In a letter to the bereaved party chieftain on Wednesday, President Buhari described as “irreparable” the loss by Chief Akande of his wife of 50 years, the presidency said.

The president’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said Mr. Buhari had earlier phoned the family to condole with them.

The President’s message reads as follow: “I received the very sad news of the death of your dearly beloved wife, Madam Omowunmi Akande this morning.

I am following our phone call with this letter of condolence, which comes from my heart.

“To lose a wife, a dear wife after 50 years, a constant and loving companion through good and bad times, is a blow only a man of unshakeable faith can withstand.

Please extend my personal condolences to the immediate and wider Akande family and to friends of the family for this irreparable loss.

“May Allah give you the strength and Iman to endure her passing away.”

    Is someone saying the only functional thing Buhari’s dead brain is activated to do is send condolence messages?
    It is satanic for the President of a country to surround himself with mediocres,
    Osibande went to London and came back after about three hours of meeting with a ghost and in a few hours after, the ghost sends a message to a man who lost his wife.
    Osinbanjo is a shameless man who has his personal interest (power) alone and careless about what happens to the rest of Nigerians. He has failed to realise that Nigerian went into hybernation around February 2014 when campaigns for the last General elections began. Since then, nothing has happened in the economy, except that Buhari and Osinbajo drove it into acute depression.
    In a bid to hold on to power by the far-North and Lagos factor, they have been engaged in hide and seek game waiting until something calamitous happens. Thereafter, they would begin to whip up sentiments, for Nigerians to get involved.
