Buhari visits Shonekan’s family in Lagos



President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday paid a condolence visit to the family of the late Head of the Interim National Government (ING), Chief Ernest Shonekan, in Lagos.

Shonekan, who was a boardroom guru before he was appointed into the Transitional Council by former President Ibrahim Babangida in 1992, died on January 11 at the age of 85.

President Buhari visited the former Nigerian leader’s home in the Ikoyi area of Lagos shortly after he left Ogun State where he commissioned some projects executed by the state government.
