I regret announcing the death of my grandfather, H.E Alhaji Shehu Shagari, who died right now after brief illness at the National hospital, Abuja.
Nigeria’s former President, Shehu Shagari has died at the age of 93.
This was revealed by his grandson on his Twitter handle.
Shagari was elected Nigeria’s President in 1979, defeating Obafemi Awolowo.
He was President from 1979 to 1983.
