PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI CONDOLES WITH NIGER STATE GOVERNMENT OVER LOSS OF PROF. SHEHU BIDA

President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the Government, family, and people of Niger State over the passing of the first professor of veterinary medicine in Northern Nigeria and a former chairman of Bida local government in Niger state, Prof Shehu Bida.

The President, in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, expressed his sadness over the demise of Professor Bida whom he described as one of Nigeria’s leading scholars in the field of sciences.

President Buhari believes that Prof Bida’s pioneering role in sparking the interest of many Nigerians in the field of veterinary medicine, impactful research publications, and tenacity for knowledge-sharing, helped in grooming many quality experts in the field at home and beyond.

The President adds that the late professor’s outstanding contributions to the development of science will be long remembered, hoping that his peers in the academic community will build on his legacy.

He prays almighty Allah to forgive the shortcomings of the deceased and grant his family and friends the fortitude to bear the loss.
