Former President Goodluck Jonathan has condoled with the family of late former President Shehu Shagari, describing him as an amiable leader that meant well for Nigeria and the world at large.
Jonathan was accompanied on the visit by Mr Peter Obi, running mate of the 2019 Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state, as well as other PDP leaders in the state.
He said the late former president played a key role in the development of Nigeria and the democratic system.
“A unique habit of the late former President, which only those who interacted with him will tell is, he was a very simple and humble man in spite of the various positions he held.
“He possessed a very clean and good heart which he showed clearly in his life time thorough various engagements and activities.
“We are mourning today however, we are still happy because it is not easy to reach the age of 93.
“I believe he has done all the works Allah has asked him to do on earth,’’ Jonathan said.
Responding, the eldest son of the deceased, Alhaji Bala Shagari thanked former President Jonathan for the visit.
Shagari recalled the concern and solidarity shown by former president Jonathan when their father was ill.
