Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, condoled with the family and Edo State Government over demise of the ex-Super Eagles boss, Coach Shuaibu Amodu.
This is contained in a statement signed by the Director of Media to Wife of the President, Malam Zakariyau Nadabo in Abuja, on Monday.
“The sudden demise of coach Amodu few hours after his professional colleague Stephen Keshi is a cause for shock.
“The triumphant exploits of coach Amodu in the international sports arena with Nigeria’s national team will forever remain part of his indelible credentials of a true professional, who stood out among many,’’ the statement said.
Mrs Buhari recalled, “coach Amodu led Nigerian team to the international arena several times and returned with accolades.”
She said that the death of Amodu was indeed a great loss to the loving football family both local and international, particularly Nigeria as a country, “which has a haven of professional sportsmen and women’’.
The president’s wife prayed that the family would take solace in God, who is the creator of everything on earth.
