President Muhammadu Buhari says the death of the President of the United Arab Emirates, UAE, Sheikh Khalifah Bin Zayed has stripped the world of one of its visionary and most remarkable leaders of modern times.

President Buhari said that it would be impossible to write about the socio-economic transformation of the UAE without recognising the significant and immeasurable contributions of the deceased to the progress of the country.

The late Khalifa Bin Zayed, according to President Buhari, will have a prominent mention in the pantheon of great achievers, who have used the wealth of their countries to transform the lives of the people.
