President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday commiserated Chief Eugene Ojukwu, on the loss of his wife, Fanny, who died at 70.

Buhari urged Ojukwu, the Chairman of Ekesons Group, to accept the loss of his long-time companion in good faith.

He noted that the deceased kept the home front while the husband toiled to build his business conglomerate.

“She also ensured that the children were well nurtured into becoming successful professionals,” the statement further quoted Buhari as saying of the late woman.

The president enjoined the Ojukwu family to find comfort in the fact that the departed lived a quality life and positively touched all that came in contact with her.
