Buhari was quoted to have said in a reaction to the sad news: “I am deeply touched by the demise of your brother who was a very dedicated community leader that not only shared your best aspirations, but also committed himself to promoting them.
“May his soul rest in peace. May Allah forgive his shortcomings and reward his good deeds. May Allah comfort you and other members of the family at this difficult moment of grief.”
Also, President Buhari has sent his condolences to the government and people of Kano State over the death of Alhaji Aminu Ibrahim, a renowned Chartered Accountant.
The President, according to Shehu, said that “as one of pioneers of the profession in Northern Nigeria, late Aminu Ibrahim distinguished himself in his chosen career.”
Buhari added: “Accounting is one of the toughest subjects, but Aminu was undeterred because of his commitment to excel no matter the enormity of the challenge.
“I am proud of Aminu’s record of mentoring others who also chose a career in Accounting.”
He prayed to Allah to bless his soul and reward his great deeds with paradise, the statement noted.
