President Muhammadu Buhari prays God to comfort former Inspector General of Police and Chairman, Police Service Commission, Alhaji Musiliu Smith, on the loss of his wife, Ariat.
The President urges the former police boss, his family, relations and friends, to take heart at the passage of a dutiful wife and mother, trusting that she has returned to her Maker, after a worthy life.
“As human beings, it will naturally be painful. But our trust in Almighty Allah is unshaken, and it is from Him we come, and to Him we return. Please be comforted,” President Buhari says.
Mrs Ariat Smith passed away on Friday, aged 69, and has been buried according to Muslim rites.
