President Muhammadu Buhari has sent condolences to the government and people of Zamfara State over the death of the former civilian Governor of the old Sokoto State, Dr. Garba Nadama.

“I am saddened to learn of the death of Dr. Garba Nadama, a great historian whose PhD thesis is still a source of reference for many students and researchers in the country,” President Buhari said.

The President noted that the late Nadama didn’t come into prominence only because of politics, but also because of his scholarly contributions in the country.

“The former Sokoto State Governor, during the second republic, achieved academic distinction in the 70s when only fewer people had a PhD.

“He rose to the pinnacle of academic excellence through sheer hard work and passion for knowledge, and I believe today’s students should aspire to build on the records of great scholars like Garba Nadama,” he said.

While also commiserating with the government and people of Sokoto State and the family of the deceased, President Buhari prayed Allah to forgive the soul of the departed and reward his great deeds with paradise.
