Tinubu while sending his condolences to the Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari, lamented that Nigeria has lost some of its outstanding citizens in recent time.
“My condolences to Governor Aminu Bello Mazari of Katsina State and the Funtua Community. We have lost too many outstanding Nigerians in such a short time. We cannot question why for the will of Almighty Allah is sovereign and supreme,” he added.
