President Muhammadu Buhari has joined other world leaders to mourn the death of a great hero and Cuban revolutionary leader, Fidel Castro.

In a statement signed by Buhari’s Special Assistant On Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina on Saturday afternoon, he disclosed that the president received the news of Castro‘s death with profound sadness.

“On behalf of the Federal Government, President Buhari offers deepest condolences to Cuban President Raul Castro, and the people of Cuba on the passing early Saturday of the legendary leader, who passionately served his people for almost half a century,” Buhari said.

He assured Cubans of the sympathy and solidarity of all Nigerians as they mourn the exit of “this remarkable leader who against all odds stirred uncommon development in sports, education and healthcare sectors of his nation, even to the benefit of other nations”.

He added: “As a great friend to Africa, countries in the Global South and the Non-Aligned Movement, President Buhari believes that Castro’s place in history is assured, given his sustained successful commitment and towering role in the liberation and anti-colonialism struggles in Africa.”
