Buhari Expresses Condolence to Na’Allah Over Wife’s Death

Former President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed his condolence to Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah on the death of his wife, Safiya Na’Allah.

In a telephone call to Bala Na’Allah on Wednesday, the former president expressed his sadness over the demise of the deceased, saying that the Na’Allah family had lost a strong family pillar and the Senator, a dependable partner.

The late Safiya had been everything a wife could be to her husband, leaving a void that is impossible to fill,” Buhari was quoted to have said in a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu.

Na’Allah represented Kebbi South at the Senate and served as Deputy Majority Leader at the Eight Senate.

Na’allah’s eldest son, Abdulkarim, was murdered by unknown gunmen on August 29, 2021, in his residence in Kaduna.

The Senator in an interview sometime 2016 said everyone in his family are pilots except his now late wife.

He said, “I have a family of five, including my wife and three children. Only my wife does not fly (aircraft); the rest of us do fly. It is the choice of the family. We decided on what we wanted to do and helped each other to grow.”
