President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday condoled the government and people of Katsina State over the death of the Chief Imam of Katsina Juma’at Mosque, Malam Liman Lawal.
President Buhari, in a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, joins the Katsina Emirate, the immediate and extended family of the cleric, his associates and all Muslims in the state in mourning Lawal, describing him as a cerebral religious leader, who spent his days praying and teaching values and precepts of the Quran.
Shehu said the president believes that Malam Liman, who passed on at the age of 95 years, lived a pious, worthy and highly recommendable life that will be remembered by posterity.
Buhari urged all Muslims in the state to immortalise him by living the virtues of love, peace and neighbourliness he lived and propagated.
President Buhari prayed Allah to grant the soul of the departed good rest and comfort his family.
