President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the family of former Senate President, Dr Chuba Okadigbo, over the death of their son, Pharaoh Okadigbo.

Describing Pharaoh’s death as a sad loss, the President observed that he was a promising youth with much passion for young people’s involvement in the sociopolitical development of Nigeria.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, Buhari said the deceased shared the same passion for a better Nigeria for all Nigerians with himself.

“President Muhammadu Buhari condoles with family of the former Senate President, the late Chuba Okadigbo on the death of their son, Pharaoh Okadigbo.

“Reacting to the news of the death, President Buhari says it is very sad to lose such a promising young man with so much potentials and passion for youth involvement in the socio-political development of Nigeria.

“The President notes that the late Pharaoh at an early age keyed into the vision of a better Nigeria not just for the privileged but for all and sundry, which he (the President) shared with the late Chuba, who was his running mate in the 2003 presidential election.

“President Buhari adds that the nation will miss a firm believer in the necessity for the people to work in collaboration with governments at all levels to achieve the better society we all wish for.

“He prays that God Almighty will comfort family, friends and associates, and repose the soul of the departed,” the statement reads.
