Former president Muhammadu Buhari yesterday mourned a noted journalist, author and politician, Sidi Hamid Ali, who passed away following a long illness.
Calling the late journalist a creative writer, the former president in a statement by his media aide, Garba Shehu said Sidi won his admiration when he wrote an excellent book chronicling his war against the twin evils of corruption and indiscipline as military Head of State, and followed up with another publication on his accomplishments as an elected civilian president.
“I am pained by the demise of noted journalist, author, and politician, Sidi H. Ali, who won my heart and that of many through his critical writings, and the two books he wrote about me. He was a creative writer. My condolences to his family and admirers.”
In another message to his former Special Assistant, Political Matters, in the office of the Vice President, President Buhari condoled the death of a famous medical doctor, Dr. Hafiz Baffa Yola, who also died after a prolonged illness.
In the message to Abdulrahman Baffa Yola, a younger brother of the deceased, the former President said Dr. Baffa lived not for himself but for the family, Kano community, and the nation.
He prayed to Allah to repose the souls of the deceased.
