Politics Africa: Buhari expresses sadness over the death of five in his Taraba campaign

Buhari expresses sadness over the death of five in his Taraba campaign
The President of the federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over the loss of lives at the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Rally in Jalingo, Taraba State, Thursday.
This is following the death of five persons who were said to have died and many injured during the campaign.
In his reaction to the tragic death of some APC supporters due to the overwhelming crowd at the Jolly Nyame Stadium, the President said: “I always feel very sad and distressed when ordinary Nigerians who love me and our party because of what we stand for and have done, make personal sacrifices by taking the pains to show their support, end their lives tragically.”
While appreciating the massive support he is receiving all over the country, Buhari called for restraint on the part of his supporters to avoid such tragic incidences, and improved crowd management at rally grounds.
“I want them to stay alive and witness the dividends of purposeful governance that the APC administration will unfold when they renew our mandate,” he said.
Commiserating with the families of the victims and the APC family, the President prayed God to grant peace to the souls of the departed and speedy recovery to the injured.
