President Buhari mourns ‘Daddy’





President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday mourned Gabriel Igboanugo, a man he fondly called Daddy.

A statement to DAILY POST on Sunday, signed by Femi Adesina, his Spokesman, said that Buhari and his ‘Daddy’ became very close when he was the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 3rd Armoured Division of the Nigerian Army, Jos, Plateau State.

“Pa Igboanugo was the Principal Education Officer at the Command Secondary School, Jos, and had a close and amicable relationship with the then GOC,” the statement said.

The statement said “Lady Margaret Igboanugo, in a private letter to President Buhari, writes: ‘My husband, whom you used to fondly call ‘Daddy,’ passed away the way he lived; peacefully and in comfort, in his home in Ihiala, Anambra State. He will be buried there on Friday, November 27, 2020.”

The President commiserated with the Igboanugo family, urging them to take solace in the fact that their patriarch lived to a ripe old age, and touched the lives of a countless number of people that came across his way.
