President Muhammadu Buhari has described the death of Sultan Qaboos Bin Said Al-Said of Oman as “a great loss not only to his country, but also the entire humanity because of his record as a peace maker and tireless mediator for peace in the troubled Middle East.”
According to a statement made available to newsmen yesterday by his spokesman, Mallam Garba Shehu, Buhari while reacting to the death of the longest reigning ruler in the Middle East, said “the promotion of peace is one of the most important contributions we can make for humanity, and I am pleased that the late Sultan Qaboos dedicated his life to this worthy cause.”
President explained that, “apart from his contributions to peace in the Middle East, the late Omani ruler had also transformed his once poor country into a modern state. His record was so remarkable that he would be remembered for years to come.
“Let me use this opportunity to extend my condolences to the government and people of Oman as well as the family of the deceased. May his soul rest in peace. May Allah grant him paradise and reward his good deeds. May Allah grant his family the fortitude to bear this great loss”, the President concluded.
