President Muhammadu Buhari joins members of All Progressives Congress (APC) and Ijaw Community in Delta State in mourning former acting Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Pastor Power Ziakede Aginighan, who died on Friday.
President Buhari sends his condolences to family, friends, professional and political associates of the deceased, who also lost his son and police orderly in the unfortunate car accident.
As former Executive Director, and later acting Managing Director of the NNDC, the President believes Pastor Aginighan’s leadership role in the quest for peace and development in the South-South region of the country is most remarkable, especially with his foray into politics for selfless service to his people.
President Buhari commends the APC chieftain’s loyalty to the party and his contributions to all the successes recorded in elections and development of the country, regretting that he passed on at a crucial moment in the nation’s political history.
The President prays that the almighty God will receive the soul of Pastor Aginighan, his son and orderly, and comfort the families they left behind.
