Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has written a condolence letter to the United States President Donald Trump over the death of George Bush, former president of the US.

Bush, the 41st president of the US, died on Friday at the age of 94.

In the letter made available by Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo’s media aide, the former Nigerian president said the demise of late Bush is a loss to the entire world.

Obasanjo said the late former president had interest in Nigeria which showed in the special relationship between both countries.

“President Bush’s death is a loss not only to his immediate family and to the United States of America but also to the entire world,” he wrote.

“With the refocused and renewed emphasis on market reforms, political and social accountability, and stronger trade relations, his legacies have continued over the years to shape Africa’s relations with the United States.

“President Bush’s special interest in Nigeria was reflective of the special relations between our two countries. We join you and the American people in mourning the loss of a political giant, an astute administrator, a courageous leader, an erudite international statesman, and a great American hero.

“Though the world would miss him, his legacies would continue to inspire many to reach the highest points of their productive, political and creative abilities. Once again, accept our deep sympathies. May God grant his soul perfect peace and rest.”
