President Muhammadu Buhari has mourned the passing of Kano businessman and industrialist, Alhaji Sani Buhari Daura, describing his death as “a great loss not only to Katsina and Kano States but also the entire country because of his role in the country’s economy”.
Reacting to the news of the death as announced by the family on Sunday, President Buhari, in a release issued by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, noted that the late Daura was one of the oldest pioneer businessmen in the country who contributed immensely to the economy and helped to create jobs for hundreds of people.
“Men like Sani Buhari rose to success through sheer hardwork and drive,” said the president.
According to the president, “The late Sani Buhari had demonstrated that we can achieve success through labour,” adding that his life story is inspiring because of his commitment to hardwork and perseverance.
He wished the Buhari Daura families in Daura and Kano, as well as government and people of the two states the fortitude to bear the loss.
