President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday condoled with Audu Katagum over the death of his father, Alhaji Sule Katagum, Wazirin Katagum.

Malam Garba Shehu, the president’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, said Buhari’s condolence message was contained in a letter addressed to the Head of the Sule Katagum family.

In the letter, Buhari said he received with shock and sadness news of the death of Wazirin Katagum.

He described the passing of the revered traditional ruler as a great loss to the Nation.

The letter read: “I have known him and followed his illustrious career, which spanned the First and Second Republics."

“His leadership of the Federal Public Service Commission, which was the longest and most eventful, had been with great distinction and uncommon grace.’’

The president paid tribute to Katagum for his numerous contributions to the country and the people of Katagum.

He noted that as a public servant and traditional ruler he led with ‘‘distinction, competence and exemplary integrity.

‘‘There is no doubt that Nigeria, especially the North and Katagum Emirate, have lost a great and irreplaceable son.

“May his soul rest in perfect peace.’’
