President Muhammadu Buhari has communicated bitterness over the demise of previous Saudi Arabia's longest-serving Oil Minister, Sheik Ahmed Zaki Yamani, who passed on at a London medical clinic at 90.
Responding to the death of Yamani, President Buhari says "Yamani was one of the best and most handy mediators I at any point met when I was Minister for Petroleum Resources during the Murtala/Obasanjo system."
As per the President, "the late Yamani was a transcending figure in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC in light of his surprising initiative abilities and savage obligation to securing the interests of oil delivering nations."
president Buhari reviewed that "the 1973 oil ban caused the world to notice the huge impact of Yamani in the undertakings of the oil cartel."
"Regardless of whether you love him or abhor him, there is no denying the way that Zaki Yamani was an amazing power in OPEC undertakings who deserved admiration and esteem of companions and adversaries the same," he said of the late Saudi Oil Minister.
The President added that "as one of the more youthful Oil Ministers addressing their nations at OPEC, I was awed and roused by Yamani's surprising initiative abilities and strategic artfulness."
He portrayed Yamani as a fortunate man who endures psychological oppressor bondage in the wake of being kidnapped by the infamous fear monger 'Carlos the Jackal' in 1973.
President Buhari stretched out his sympathies to King Salman, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and the public authority of Saudi Arabia over what he called "this massive loss of a world legislator and consummate Oil Minister."
