President Buhari Commiserates With Kogi State Government on Death of Justice Nasir Ajana
President Muhammadu Buhari has consoled with the government and people of Kogi State over the death of the Chief Judge of the State, Justice Nasir Ajana.
Justice Nasir Ajana had been battling a health challenge and died from COVID-19 complications at the age of 64 at the COVID-19 isolation centre in Gwagwalada, Abuja, on Sunday morning.
Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Buhari, in a statement on Sunday, said the brilliant legal career of the late justice would remain a reference.
Buhari said the late chief judge made a remarkable impact in kogi, his chosen profession, and community, with clear evidence that his death will create a huge gap in the judiciary.
The Nigerian leader also commiserated with Ajana’s family, the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), and Body of Benchers over the demise of the legal luminary.
Buhari prayed that God should grant the soul of the departed a peaceful rest and urged the family and all associates to find comfort in prayers and acceptance of the will of God.
Ajana, whose remains was buried in Abuja on Sunday, served as chairman, election petitions tribunal in Akwa Ibom State (2007) and chairman, election petitions tribunal in Rivers State (2008).
