0

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday extended his condolences to Queen Elizabeth II over the death of her husband, Prince Philip.

He sympathised with the Queen in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.

“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.”

President Buhari described the late Duke of Edinburgh as a remarkable husband who had been happily married to the Queen since 1947, saying such union was an impressive record for any marriage at any level.

He also commiserated with the government of the United Kingdom and members of the Commonwealth for the death of Prince Philip, whom he said was a royal and global icon.
