President Muhammadu Buhari says the belatedly Chairman of the Plateau Province All Progressives Congress (APC) Elders Council, Captain Joseph Din will be missed by him (Buhari), the household and the authorities and people of Plateau Swhom he loved so much and served with all his free energy.
The President, who sent a strong delegation to the burial, which took location on Saturday in Jos, said Captain Din, with whom he had served in the same unit in the ground forces as a immature officer will be missed as a friend and political ally.
In a letter of the alphabet to the widow, Mrs. Christiana Din, which was signed by him and read in Church building by the leader of the delegation, Dame Pauline Tallen, Government minister of Women Affairs and Social Evolution, President Buhari said the belatedly Captain Din “was a trusted and really dependable friend.
“He was a broad-minded patriot whose approach to national issues was most practical and worthy of emulation. He was as a peace-loving man.
“I also commiserate with the Plateau Province Regime and the All Progressives Congress household in the Province on the demise of the Chairman of the political party’s Elders Advisory Council, believing that his wise counsel would be sorely missed, particularly at this time.
“Since his retirement, my belatedly friend has conducted himself really good in business and politics as a man of peace, contributing tremendously to the relative tranquility enjoyed in the Plateau.
“As I condole with you and members of the household, I urge you to take solace in the good works that the belatedly Captain left behind and remain strong and pray that Almighty God will tranquility his soul.”
The President’s delegation included the Principal of Defence Staff, Full general Leo Irabor, the Senior Special Assistant to the President, Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu and Barrister Udeme Ekott, representing Sen. James Akpanudoedehe, Secretarial assistant, All Progressives Congress Caretaker and Extraordinary Conference Planning Commission.
