Former Inspector General of Police, Alhaji Muhammadu Dikko Yusuf
President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday extended his heartfelt condolences to the government and people of Katsina State on the death of one of their most illustrious sons, and a former Inspector General of Police, Alhaji Muhammadu Dikko Yusuf.
Jonathan, in statement by presidential spokesman, Dr. Reuben Abati, also commiserated with Yusuf’s family.
He equally commiserated with Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) on the demise of the respected leader of the cultural and political association.
The President shared their grief as they mourn the eminent Nigerian who served his country dutifully throughout his successful career in the Nigerian Police, and later on, as a political leader and elder statesman.
Jonathan said he believed that later MD Yusuf, as he was fondly called by his friends and associates, will long be remembered for his outstanding political courage and exemplary determination during Nigeria’s transition to democracy after years of military rule.
The president recalled that as leader of the Grassroots Democratic Movement at that time, the late MD Yusuf embodied some of the best values of bravery and patriotism.
Jonathan prayed that Almighty Allah will grant his soul eternal rest and comfort all who mourn him.
