The president also commiserated with the Government and people of Kaduna State and described the late Afaka as an honest, capable, and reliable person.
According to the president, the late driver handled his job with utmost care and responsibility.
Meanwhile, the president is currently in London for a medical check-up. As he is enjoying his stay, some Nigerians who are supporters of the president, President Buhari have held a prayer session for the president.
The prayers were held at the Nigeria House in London. This comes after the president arrived in London last week to spend two weeks to enable him to undergo a medical checkup.
These supporters of the president took to the gate of the Nigeria House where he’s staying with placards with some inspiring and lovely words to show that they believe in Nigeria’s unity despite the challenges in the country at the moment.
This comes days after a protest was staged at the Nigeria House against his decision to have his medical checkup in London.
This protest was led by Reno Omokri who is a former presidential aide. On why he stage the protest, he said;
“He (Buhari) left Nigeria on the day that doctors began their strike. He’s not building hospitals for people, yet he comes here to enjoy the best in a country that has law and order. Why can’t he do that in his country?
His children all schooled here in England. He has not built a single school for Nigerians. If they are sick, they all come here.”
