President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the family of elder statesman, retired Air Commodore Dan Suleiman, who recently passed on.
In a condolence message issued by his media aide, Malam Garba Shehu, on Friday in Abuja, the president recalled the life and times of the retired military man:
”The late Air Commodore Dan Suleiman who served as a Military Governor in Plateau State was one soldier that lived the oath, always ready to defend the unity and peace of the country in whatever capacity he found himself.”
The president remarked that after his exit from the Military, the late Air Commodore continued to defend Nigerian citizens as an activist.
He said that Dan Suleiman was one of the founding fathers of the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO), that fought for the revalidation of the June 12, 1993 elections, as well as the return of the country to democratic governance.
Buhari prayed that God would strengthen his family and friends as well as the Middle Belt Forum (MBF), which he once chaired, and repose the soul of the departed.
