The latest message from former Vice President Abubakar Atiku, to President Muhammadu Buhari is that of peace and not war.

The president had been bereaved with the passing away of his sister-in-law, Hajiya Aisha Mamman.

So, Atiku thought it was wise, in spite of their political differences, to commiserate with the President over the loss.

But he did not have to write a letter. He did it via a statement on his Twitter handle on Saturday.

Atiku, who is now a chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), also commiserated with the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai over the demise of his father and World War II Veteran, Malam Yusuf Buratai.

“On behalf of the Abubakar Atiku family, I commiserate with President Buhari over the passing on of his sister-in-law, Hajiya Aisha Mamman.

“May Allah grant her Aljannah Firdaus, and grant the Danbaffale Mamman family in Daura the fortitude to bear the loss. Amen.”

Atiku added: “Malam Yusuf Buratai, a World War II Veteran and father of COAS Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai will be remembered for his services to keep country and the world safe and united.

“May Allah grant him Aljannah Firdaus. Amen.”
