The statement stated that Shehu led NSE executives on a condolence visit to the family of the late Bulama in Maiduguri.
On the occasion, Shehu said the late COREN President would be remembered by the engineering family for his contributions to the growth and development of the profession and the country.
“It is a great loss to the engineering family and the global community, he is an effective leader who inspired his colleagues to attain global heights for the engineering family,” NSE president said.
He described Bulama, a 1977 engineering graduate of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, as a Civil/Structural Engineer with outstanding academic background and experience that spanned more than 33 years.
Until his death, Bulama was the past president of the Nigerian Society of Engineers from 2005 to 2006 and a committee member, World Federation of Engineering Organisations.
He died on June 8, during a brief illness in Cairo, Egypt, and has been buried according to Muslim injunctions in his home town Maiduguri.
