President Buhari Pays Tribute To Late Ex-SGF, Idris

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness at the death of a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Gidado Idris, who he described as admirable octogenarian. Buhari’s condolence message was contained in a statement made available to journalists on Saturday in Abuja by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

The President described the death of the former SGF as a big loss to the nation.“Being a highly experienced and quintessential technocrat who traversed the different stages of the political evolution of the country, his wise counsel will surely be missed,” the President said.

Buhari added that the late Idris, in addition to rising to the pinnacle of his public career as SGF, also served several civilian and military administrations meritoriously as federal permanent secretary, noting that he left inspiring imprints.
The President also commiserated with Idris’ family and associates and prayed that God will comfort them.
