President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over the death of Engr Rotimi Fashakin, a former Executive Director of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).
SHIPS & PORTS broke the news on Monday that Fashakin died in London at the age of 59.
“I’m saddened by the death of such a dedicated and loyal party man whose intellect and competence were amazing. As a former spokesperson of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) party, I’m proud to put it on record that Fashakin was one of the most dedicated and hardworking party officials that I had ever known and related with,” the President said in a statement issued by his spokesman Garba Shehu.
“The former party spokesperson had also given a good account of himself, discharging every responsibility with amazing skill and competence. The late Fashakin was an outstanding loyalist who would stand by you through thick and thin without ever complaining. These are rare virtues among our politicians.
“May God bless his gentle soul and forgive his shortcomings and grant his family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.”
