The 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has lost his close ally, Muhammad Dakat.

Late Dakat was the Director General of the National Solidarity Movement for Atiku/Okowa (NSM)
The former Nigerian Vice President in his message, offered condolence to Dakat’s family and friends, the NSM, and his support groups in general while praying God to grant the family of the deceased the strength and fortitude to bear the loss.
Atiku wrote via Twitter: “I have just been briefed about the passing of Muhammad Dakat. As Director General of the National Solidarity Movement for Atiku/Okowa (NSM), Muhammad brought a huge dose of enthusiasm and inspiration to the assignment of mobilizing compatriots in the last general election. Even after the election, he was unwavering in his commitment to the cause. Muhammad was a rallying point for young people and a natural leader who led by his convictions and personal example. We have lost one of the most Atikulated members of our family at such a young age.
“Ifeanyi Okowa and I, on behalf of the team, would like to offer our condolences to the Dakat family and friends, the NSM, and members of our support groups in general. He will be sorely missed. I pray that the Almighty Allah gives his family the strength to withstand this tragic moment. May his memories be a blessing. Amin. -AA”
