“Like all well-meaning Nigerians, PANDEF wishes to use this opportunity to sympathise with President Buhari and his entire family, including the First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari, over the unfortunate incident.

“Similarly, on behalf of the good people of the Niger Delta region, PANDEF prays for the speedy recovery of Yusuf, and guidance and protection for the first family of our dear country, Nigeria. Whilst wishing them a glorious new year, 2018,” the statement added.
