President Muhammadu Buhari has joined other world leaders in paying his respects to the late US icon, Madeleine Albright.

Madeleine Albright was the first ever female Secretary of State. She was an American diplomat who was respected around the world. She died from cancer on March 23rd at the age of 84.

In a statement released on Thursday by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Mr. Femi Adesina, President Buhari condoled with the US President, Joe Biden, and the Albright family over the passage of Madeleine.

According to Buhari, the iconic diplomat was a warm and savvy woman who “helped shape and steer Western foreign policy after the Cold War.”

He concluded by saying a prayer for her soul, “even as America and the world continue to relish her services to humanity.’’
