President Muhammadu Buhari has sent his condolences to Queen Elizabeth II, following the death of her husband, Prince Philip, on Friday.
In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, he extended his sympathies to the Royal Family.
“The death of the Duke of Edinburgh is the end of an era,” the President said in his tribute to the longest-serving Queen’s consort.
He added, “Prince Philip was one of the greatest and publicly recognisable international figures whose contributions to the Commonwealth will be remembered for generations to come.
“Prince Philip was a great man in his own right who made enormous contributions to philanthropic activities and charities, especially for wildlife conservation and youth development programmes in more than 130 countries.”
