President Buhari mourns as personal driver, Afaka dies in Aso Rock clinic


Master Warrant Officer, Sa’idu Afaka, the official driver of President Muhammadu Buhari, is dead.

It was gathered that Afaka died at the State House Clinic on Tuesday, April 6, 2021, after a prolonged battle with an undisclosed ailment.

In a statement released by the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, President Buhari extended his condolences to the family of the deceased.

The statement read:

“President Muhammadu Buhari extends heartfelt condolences to the family of Afaka on the passing of Master Warrant Officer, Sa’idu Afaka, his official driver, who died at the State House Clinic on Tuesday after a prolonged illness.

“President Buhari, who also commiserates with the Government and people of Kaduna State, described the late Afaka as an honest, capable and reliable person who handled his job with utmost care and responsibility.

“The President recalls that in 2016 Afaka, while on pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia, picked up a bag containing a large amount of foreign currencies and turned it over to the National Hajj Commission, an action which earned him praises from the Saudi and Nigerian authorities.

“President Buhari prays Almighty Allah to ‘bless the soul of the departed with an elevated place in heavens’, committing the family and friends to divine comfort and patience.”
