President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled to the Anenih family on the death of its beloved patriarch and elder statesman, Chief Anthony Anenih.
President Buhari also commiserated with the government and people of Edo State and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the passing of their illustrious son and former Chairman, Board of Trustees.
“As a frontline figure in the annals of our country’s political history, the President attests that Chief Anenih lived a life of service, as State Chairman of the National Party of Nigeria (NPN), National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), chieftain of the PDP, and a former Minister of Works.
“President Buhari affirms that across the political spectrum of Nigeria, Chief Anenih was known for his strong views on issues pertaining to the unity and stability of the nation,” a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, read in part.
The President prayed almighty God to grant Chief Anenih’s soul eternal rest and comfort all who mourn the octogenarian.
