Buhari mourns late varsity don, Briggs


President Muhammadu Buhari has shared the pain of loss with family, friends and associates of the 5th Vice Chancellor of the University of Port-Harcourt, Prof. Nimi Briggs, aged 79.

He extended sympathy to the academia and the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA).

Buhari noted the historical contributions of the scholar to national development, particularly the educational sector, reaching the pinnacle of his career with distinctions in service.

This was disclosed in a statement by Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, on Monday.

The President believed the Emeritus Professor of Medicine, Pro Chancellor of Federal University, Abakaliki, Bayelsa Medical University, Yenagoa and Chairman, Committee of Pro Chancellors of Nigerian Universities, lived for the good of the country and humanity, urging family and friends to immortalize his legacies.

Buhari, however, prayed that the Almighty God would grant the soul of the departed a peaceful rest.
