Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, is presently in a pensive mood, as he just lost one of his closest aides, Umar Pariya.
Pariya died on Tuesday in Dubai, where Atiku himself has been staying since April.
Atiku, while reacting to the death of Pariya, said the deceased was much more than a longstanding aide to him, as he was incredibly loyal and qualified as a member of his family.
He said Pariya would be missed and prayed to God to comfort his family and forgive him his sins.
“Umar Pariya was much more than a longstanding aide to me; he was incredibly loyal and qualified as a member of my family. He will be missed,” Atiku tweeted.
“May Allah comfort his family, forgive his sins and grant him AlJannah Firdaus. Ameen.”
