Buhari reacts to death of Justice Nasir

Published

on

The Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, expressed his grief and labelled the death of Justice Mamman Nasir, the former President of the Nigerian court of appeals “as not only a loss to the judiciary, but also the country at large.”

In a statement released by President Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu, he said that the late Justice “belonged to a generation of Judges and Justices who perceived public office as an opportunity to offer selfless service to the country and its people.”

“Nasir and Judges of their golden age were more interested in leaving untainted record of integrity than accumulation of wealth overnight.”

He also stated, “when you look at Nasir’s modest lifestyle and his incredibly humble possessions, you would be disarmed at once by his honesty and patriotism.”

“While some Nigerians perceive public office as an opportunity to line their pockets, men of Nasir’s character put a higher premium on honest labour than on greedy accumulation of questionable wealth overnight.”

President Buhari also said that, “gentlemen like Mamman Nasir succeeded in protecting their reputation because greed was far removed from their minds”, and that “contentment is the secret to a happy life of service to the people.”

“Lack of contentment is the devil behind greedy accumulation of wealth at the expense of others, but selfless public servants like Nasir were never motivated by the desire to live above their means.”

“Nasir’s family should be proud of their father because he built a solid and impeccable record of integrity, which is the greatest asset any individual should leave behind.”
The President, has since sent a delegate to console the family of the deceased and people of his state (Kastina) for the loss of a member of their Emirate Council.
