President Muhammadu Buhari commiserates with Umar Lawan Kareto, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on the loss of his son, Imran, which took place earlier (today) Tuesday. He was Twenty four years old.
In a message to the family delivered by Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, President Buhari notes that the loss of such a lively young man at this time could not but cause immense grief to all who knew him.
“This is a great loss. Imran was such a brilliant young man. Full of life, with a lot of promise, he had consistently distinguished himself wherever he was found. He shone in the schools he went, won many Letters of Commendation, and was a friend to all. His generation has lost a shining star,” the President said.
He prays that Allah will give the family, courage to bear the loss, especially strengthen the siblings who looked up to him for inspiration and also comfort colleagues at the Nigerian Shippers’ Council where he worked.
