The eldest son of late Shehu Shagari, Bala Shagari has told the public that his father had no grudge against Buhari or anyone because he had pardoned everyone before his death.
The statement was made by the son, when expressing appreciation to President Muhammadu Buhari over condolence visit to the family in Sokoto.
He said that the family was happy with the visit and Buhari’s pledge to immortalize the late president.
Bala, who is the district head of Shagari town in Sokoto, however, said he would not comment on Buhari’s pledge until it was fulfilled.
He said that the late president did not leave any will beside the directive that he should be buried at his home, Shagari.
“We acknowledged it but late Shagari had told us that he should be buried in Shagari town and even indicated a specific location, so we have to comply with his will,” he added.
According to him, his father had no grudge against Buhari or anyone because Shagari told us he had pardoned everyone.
He explained that the late president’s absence at functions was due to his ill-health, saying that was why he stayed in Sokoto and Shagari town before he died.
The Late President died at age 93 after a brief illness.
