Her son, formerly Prince Charles has taken over and is now King Charles III.
Buhari, in series of tweets late Thursday said “My family and I, and the more than 200 million Nigerians, have learnt with immense sadness of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, and the end of her unique and wonderful 70-year reign.
“She was the only British Sovereign known to 90 percent of our population. Our thoughts and sincere condolences are with the Royal Family, the people of the United Kingdom, and the entire Commonwealth, as we join the entire world in mourning this loss.”
