Muhammad Dakat, the Director General (DG) of the National Solidarity Movement for Atiku/Ifeanyi Okowa (NSM), is dead.
Late Muhammad was a staunch supporter of former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar.
The news of Muhammad was received with grief by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate.
In a statement he signed, Atiku said: “I have just been briefed about the passing of Muhammad Dakat.
“As Director General of the National Solidarity Movement for Atiku/Okowa (NSM), Muhammad brought a huge dose of enthusiasm and inspiration to the assignment of mobilising compatriots in the last general election.
“Even after the election, he was unwavering in his commitment to the cause. Muhammad was a rallying point for young people and a natural leader who led by his convictions and personal example. We have lost one of the most Atikulated members of our family at such a young age.
“Ifeanyi Okowa and I, on behalf of the team, would like to offer our condolences to the Dakat family and friends, the NSM, and members of our support groups in general. He will be sorely missed.
“I pray that the Almighty Allah gives his family the strength to withstand this tragic moment. May his memories be a blessing. Amin.”
