President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the family of former Senate President, Joseph Wayas, on the passing of the elder statesman.
Buhari in a condolence message released by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, on Thursday said Waya’s “influence contributed to Nigeria’s democracy.
He Buhari noted the sacrifices of Wayas, who started taking up leadership responsibilities at an early age, turning a Senate President at 38, and remaining vibrant and dynamic in mentoring leaders long after he retired from politics.
Buhari joined the National Assembly, Government and people of Cross River, friends and associates in mourning Wayas, believing his legacies would be approximated for posterity.
He prayed that his soul would find rest with the Lord
