Legit.ng recalls that King Salman bin Abdulaziz was rushed to hospital over deteriorating health condition, with reports in Reuters claiming he was rushed to Faisal Specialist Hospital for medical tests due to inflammation of the gallbladder.
Speaking on the monarch's health, President Buhari extolled the memories he shared with King Abdulaziz, saying he is "one of the finest leaders I have ever met in the course of my interactions with world leaders."
"King Salman is a true friend of Nigeria who has never failed to identify with us at all times through important collaborations and cooperation.
"As he receives medical attention, I send my best wishes and prayers for his speedy recovery," President Buhari said in a tweet on his official handle on Monday.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Rauf Aregbesola, minister of interior and former governor of Osun state, has canonised the memories of Oba Adesoji Aderemi, the late Ooni of Ife who also served as the governor of Nigeria's old western region.
Writing through his Twitter handle on Sunday, July 5, in celebration of the legendary king who died 40 years ago, Aregbesola showered a flurry of encomiums of the personalities of Aderemi, saying "memory of him has continued to be sweet, melodious and good."
The minister also praised the late monarch for his philosophical wisdom and his enviable academic success.
According to him, Oba Aderemi was a knowledgeable king who did not mix political rulership with kingship and that greatly helped him to contribute excessively towards the development of education in Nigeria alongside Cheif Obafemi Awolowo.
