Joining the diplomatic corps and the National Assembly in mourning the demise of the former diplomat and lawmaker, President Buhari noted that Waziri worked hard to improve the conditions of his community and the country, as a public servant, who served in many capacities.

The President extolled the humanity, integrity and purposefulness that Waziri brought into all his responsibilities.

He prayed God to receive his soul and grant his loved ones the fortitude to bear the loss.
