Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has commiserated with former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Mallam Nasir El-Rufai on the death of his son, Hamza.
In a condolence message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Peter Okhiria, Comrade Oshiomhole said: “we learnt with rude shock, the death of your beloved son, Hamza, in a car accident. I wish to offer my profound condolence and the commiseration of the people and Government of Edo State on this sad incident. Our hearts are with you and the entire El-Rufai family at this very difficult period.
“While we grieve over his death, we take solace that Hamza was a son in whom the family was proud as he had started to carve a niche for himself through a dint of hard work and intellect.
“This trying period, no doubt, calls for a renewed faith in the Glory and Majesty of Almighty Allah, from whom we all come and to whom we will all return.
“Our supplication is for Almighty Allah to, in His infinite mercy, receive his soul with His love and forgiveness and bless him with Aljannah firdausi. We also pray Almighty Allah to give you and the entire El-Rufai family the fortitude to bear the great loss.”
