President Muhammadu Buhari has mourned the death of Emir of Dutse, Alhaji (Dr) Nuhu Muhammad Sanusi.
The president described the late Emir as an exemplary leader.
This was contained in a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the president on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu on Tuesday.
According to Shehu, the late Emir was recognized as one of Northern Nigeria’s modernizing leaders.
The Emir was the Chancellor of the Sokoto State University before his death today in Abuja.
"He was considered as an exemplary leader in the global quest for a sustainable living environment, and a lead advocate for afforestation and the green ecosystem.
"The late Emir’s official biography equally puts him up as an advocate of the mitigation of climate change, prompting him to build the Dutse Royal Golf Course which is reputed to be one of the largest in Nigeria with lush vegetation, exotic flora and rare fauna."
He added that the president expressed sadness over the loss of the Emir.
‘‘He was instrumental to the progress Dutse had achieved in the last three decades under his watch.
"He was a grassroots person who was loved by all," the president said.
"The President conveyed his condolences and that of the nation to the Dutse Emirate, the government and people of Jigawa State over the sad loss," the statement added.
