Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with Accountant General, Ahmed Idris after he has lost his father, Idris Hussain.

He has been buried according to Islamic rites.

He hailed from Daneji Quarters in Kano Municipal Local Government Council of Kano State.
President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with his son, Idris and the family.
His condolence message was contained in a statement by presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu.
Buhari said the late Hussain did not only live for himself, but also devoted his life to the service of humanity through philanthropic deeds.
He noted his selflessness and passion for humanity are virtues “for which he will be remembered for many years to come.”
Buhari appealed to other well-to-do members of society to borrow a leaf from the noble deeds of the late Idris Hussain.
The president prayed to Allah to forgive the soul of the deceased and grant him paradise “for his good deeds during his remarkable life on earth.”
