President Goodluck Jonathan Monday extended appreciation to a broad spectrum of Nigerians who joined him and his family to bury his younger brother, Chief Meni Innocent Jonathan, in Otuoke, Bayelsa State at the weekend.

The president, who returned to Abuja, yesterday, after the burial rites on Saturday, thanked Nigerians, who showed sympathy to his family.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, in a statement, said: “On behalf of the entire Jonathan family, President Jonathan wishes to convey his immense thanks and appreciation to all Nigerians and friends of the country who showed sympathy and solidarity with him and members of his family as they mourned and buried the late Chief Meni Jonathan.

“The President wishes to particularly thank former Heads of State, state governors, the entire leadership of the National Assembly, foreign Heads of State and Government, Diplomatic Representatives, members of professional and non-governmental organisations and ordinary Nigerians who either travelled to Otuoke for the burial ceremonies or commiserated with the family in other ways,” the statement added.

President Jonathan prayed that God Almighty will bless and reward them all for their love, kindness and sympathy which had helped to assuage the grief and pain of his family over the loss of a beloved brother.
