President Buhari to immortalise country’s first executive president Shehu Shagari

President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to immortalise the country’s first president, Alhaji Shehu Shagari.

This promise was made in Sokoto on Sunday by the president while paying a condolence visit to the Shagari family.

In a letter to the Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal, the President stated that the late Shagari was a landmark figure being virtually the last link to the post-independence government of Alhaji Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, and the first elected President of Nigeria.

He disclosed that the Federal Government will, in due course, institute a suitable memorial to the late former President.
