Buhari mourns Sen. Rose Oko



President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the government and people of Cross River, and the National Assembly over the death of Senator representing Cross River North, Mrs Rose Oko.

The president’s condolence message was contained in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Wednesday.

Buhari said that he believed that the senator’s historic service to the nation especially at the National Assembly, starting from House of Representatives and later the Senate, would always be remembered.

According to him, Oko’s long stay at the legislature clearly testifies to her popularity and acceptance.

Buhari lauded the senator for championing development issues at the National Assembly, especially on girl-child education and health.

He, therefore, noted with sadness, that her voice, intelligence and experience will be sorely missed, and the promise of a brighter political career would not be realised.

Buhari commiserated with family of the deceased, her friends and political associates.

He prayed that the almighty God would continue to comfort them, while urging them to find strength and solace in her legacies of a life of service to God, the country and humanity.
