Buhari commiserates with Keyamo over father’s death
President Muhammadu Buhari has extended heartfelt condolences to the Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, on the passing of his father, Pa Matthias Keyamo.
In a condolence message released by his spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, on Sunday in Abuja, the president joined members of the Keyamo family, friends and the people of Effurun in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State in mourning Pa Keyamo.
He described the deceased as a respected community leader, who loved his children with great passion and did his best to prepare them for leadership positions and opportunities.
The president added that late Keyamo was a father who deeply cherished the benefits of friendship and mutual respect to people, irrespective of their background.
Buhari believed that the deceased was an embodiment of Nigeria’s greatness and rich diversity, having spent some of his adult life in Kaduna and Ilaro, Ogun State, before settling in Ughelli.
The president urged the family of Keyamo to draw inspiration from the strength of character of their beloved father and grandfather, and prayed that God would comfort them at this time.
”May the soul of the departed rest in peace,” the president prayed.
