The Emir stated this in his condolence message issued by his spokesman, Mallam Abdulazeez Arowona. He noted that the late monarch was favoured and blessed by Allah with old age which is one of the strong factor and indication of forgiveness of shortcomings by Allah (SWT).

He therefore prayed Allah to forgive his shortcomings, accept his good deeds and admit him into al-janatul firdaos.
