"I received with shock the news of the death of your brother His Highness Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President's Representative and your brother who died some days ago,” the president said.
"On behalf of myself, the Government and the entire people of Nigeria, I extend our profound condolences to your Highness, the Nahyan family, the Government and the entire good people of UAE.

In another report, some states chairmen of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have accused some governors of being behind calls for the removal of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as the national chairman of the party. The chairmen told President Muhammadu Buhari that the governor was doing this because of 2023 presidential ambitions.
This was disclosed in a prepared speech signed by the chairman of APC state chairmen, Hon. Ali Bukar, and obtained by Daily Trust after a closed-door meeting with the president.
The 36 state chairmen of the APC had paid a courtesy visit to Buhari at the State House, Abuja, on Friday, December 6.
