President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a delegation to Kano to condole with family and friends of late Isyaku Forest who passed away last week.
The president’s delegation includes presidential spokesman Mallam Garba Shehu, Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmad Idris and APC chieftain Farouk Adamu Aliyu.
Shehu, in a message delivered on behalf of the president, said the late Forest was a household name in many parts of Nigeria, who used his melodious voice and unparalleled music compositions to campaign for his victory and that of candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“His music and that of his compatriots enthralled followers who kept faith with the party. He will forever remain in our thoughts. My condolences to his family, friends and admirers,” said the president.
Among those who received the president’s team are the mother of the deceased, Hajiya Habiba, Dauda Kahutu, alias Rarara, and Yusuf Haruna ‘Baban Chinedu’, popular political singers who sang many songs for President Muhammadu Buhari and many other APC leaders.
Dateline Nigeria reports that the First Lady Aisha Buhari, had earlier in a recent post on her Instagram page, prayed to Almighty Allah to forgive the late Isyaku Forest.
