The presidency is bereaved again as a top aide in the office of the First Lady Aisha Buhari died on Wednesday.
Identified as Sani Yekini, a protocol officer in the office of the First Lady died as a result of diabetes.
Announcing the death, Aisha Buhari wrote on Twitter “Inna lillahi wa Inna ilaihi Rajiun.
On behalf of my family and entire staff of my office, I wish to condole the family of Mr Sani Yekini a protocol officer in my office who died earlier today.
May Allah grant him Jannatul Firdaus.
Mr Yekini served in my office for 4 years, he was down with diabetes and lost the battle today . 😭
He was a very committed, dedicated and courageous staff.
May God grant the family the fortitude to bear the loss.”
This is the third death in the presidency since the passing on of the former Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Mallam Abba Kyari who died of COVID-19 in April.
