President Muhammadu Buhari has joined members of All Progressives Congress (APC) and Ijaw Community in Delta in mourning former acting Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Pastor Power Aginighan.
Aginighan died in a ghastly car accident on his way Port Harcourt from Delta on Friday.
Buhari expressed the condolences in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Monday.
The President also expressed condolences to family, friends, professional and political associates of the deceased who also lost his son and police orderly in the car accident.
Buhari said Aginighan’s leadership role in the quest for peace and development in the South-South region of the country was most remarkable, especially with his foray into politics for selfless service to his people.
He commended the APC chieftain’s loyalty to the party and his contributions to all the successes recorded in elections and development of the country.
Buhari regretted that the chieftain passed on at a crucial moment in the nation’s political history.
He prayed that almighty God would receive the soul of Aginighan, his son and orderly and comfort the families they left behind.
