A statement issued by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity) in Abuja, on Sunday, which disclosed this, informed that the late lawyer was also Attorney General and Minister of Justice under the regime of General Abdulsalami Abubakar.

According to the statement, in the message on Sunday, President Buhari described Abdullahi Ibrahim as an “exemplary lawyer and statesman with impeccable integrity who will be remembered for his selfless service to the country.

Part of it read: “He was an extraordinary philanthropist who rendered legal services without charge to many who could not pay.

“As Minister in my government, Abdullahi Ibrahim will be remembered for doing so much to empower the girl child, including access to education. His work as a member of the Nigerian team that negotiated the Maritime Boundary Treaty between Nigeria and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea and the Unitization Agreement of the Zafiro/Ekanga Oil Fields has left an indelible mark on the trajectory of this country’s history and development.

“His accomplishments will continue to make us proud.”
