  1. i sincerely sympathise with Murktar Shagari , but one thing is when his Father was president he lost a son , now murktar is deputy Governor he lost a son,
    May this not occur in the linkage of thier family in the name of Jesus, Amen.
    i will take time and pray for this family who understands Family Values and The Nation’s Interest at heart.
    God comfort you in the name of Jesusu amen.

  2. Quite unfortunate, may his soul rest in peace and may Allah grant the parent fortitude to bear the lost, well, dead is inevitable, surely every single soul must pay the price and let us do the right thing at the right time, according to federal road safety corps, factors responsible for crash includes: human, environmental and mechanical, out of these three factors one thing is standing out, i know and believe that deputy governor’s family cum formal president grand child would never drive car not less than 2011 modern, certainly the others two factors are likely the course of the crash, then who is to be blamed, God? The answer is capital NO, because God has endowed Nigeria with basic human needs to be one of leading economic power in world, definitely human factor is our major challenges we are facing in this country, leadership style, no direction, lack of vision, corruption at the centre, bad management, this is the right time for everybody to prepare and vote PDP out office come 2015 and our so called leaders to stop corruption because of their tomorrow.

    When the senior Shagari newly left office the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He lost some of his kids in an auto accident (about 4 or so.), Now this one, in the same manner. I join to pray that God in his infinit mercy, grant the family the fortitude to bear this great loss.

  4. May God grant the Shagaris the fortitude to bear this great and irreparable loss. My heart reach out to them.

  5. I know that his muslim family and friends will quickly say that his death is an act of God. But I tell them it is not. God never does any evil and will never wish that the young man should die prematurely living his wife and child behind at age 26. We human beings are, most of the time, the cause of our own misfortunes. Most of our roads across the country are death traps. There are daily, unending reports of human carnage on our roads but rather than use the abundant wealth God has given us to fix these roads we frittle them away on frivolities and begin to lie against God. I pray that God in His mercy forgive us our sins in this nation, console and watch over the family of the deceased.


    It’s unfortunate that this happened to the Shagari’s again. My his soul rest in perfect peace, Amen.
