Master Warrant Officer, Sa’idu Afaka, the official driver to President Muhammadu Buhari is dead.

Afaka was said to have died at the State House Clinic, Abuja on Tuesday after a prolonged illness.

In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President mourned the deceased who he described as honest and reliable.

The statement was titled “President Buhari condoles with family of Afaka, his official driver.”

The statement read, “President Muhammadu Buhari extends heartfelt condolences to the family of Afaka on the passing of Master Warrant Officer, Sa’idu Afaka, his official driver, who died at the State House Clinic on Tuesday after a prolonged illness.

“President Buhari, who also commiserates with the Government and people of Kaduna State, described the late Afaka as an honest, capable and reliable person who handled his job with utmost care and responsibility.

The President recalls that in 2016 the soldier, while on pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia, picked up a bag containing a large amount of foreign currencies and turned it over to the National Hajj Commission, an action which earned him praises from the Saudi and Nigerian authorities.

“President Buhari prays Almighty Allah to ‘bless the soul of the departed with an elevated place in heavens,’ committing the family and friends to divine comfort and patience.”
