Sokoto - The Family of late Sultan Ibrahim Dasuki has commended the Sokoto State Government for ensuring a befitting burial for their patriarch.

The family also commended Gov. Aminu Tambuwal for his solidarity and guidance during the mourning period.

The Sardauna of Sokoto and former Minister of Finance, Alhaji Abubakar Alhaji, said this when he led members of the family and other leaders from the Buhari ruling House of the Sokoto Caliphate, to Government House Sokoto, on Thursday.

Alhaji said Tambuwal had exhibited statesmanship during the period which they would cherish forever.

He described the late Dasuki as a distinguished Nigerian who was committed to the service and unity of the nation.
