This was made known in a statement by Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media & Publicity, in Abuja on Tuesday, April 18, 2017.

Adesina said: "President Buhari joins the diplomatic corps and the National Assembly in mourning the demise of the former diplomat and lawmaker, who worked assiduously to improve the conditions of his community and the country.

"As a public servant, who served in many capacities, the President extols the humanity, integrity and purposefulness that Waziri brought into all his responsibilities, particularly in improving relations with Turkey, which has over the years become one of Nigeria’s strong allies in the international community.

"President Buhari believes that Waziri’s wise counsels, insight and forthrightness would be sorely missed by his community and the entire country. He sympathizes with his wife, former EFCC boss, Farida Waziri, the children, and the government and people of Gombe State.

"The President prays that the almighty God will receive the soul of the departed and grant his loved ones the fortitude to bear the loss," the statement read in full.

Senator Waziri is the husband of Farida Waziri, the former boss of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
