In a condolence message by his spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Thursday, Buhari commiserated with the family of the legendary player and tactician, as well as the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

According to the president, the nation will forever remember him for his tireless devotion to duty, ensuring victory for Nigeria when it mattered most in football.

Buhari believed that Erico’s guidance as a veteran would have availed much for the Nigerian football community, but it pleased his Maker to call him home at such a time.

The president prayed Almighty God to grant the soul of the deceased eternal rest and divine comfort for family, friends, associates, and everyone who came in contact with the talented sportsman.
