ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – The President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari has described the death of the late Inspector General of Police, Alhaji Muhammadu Dikko Yusuf as a great loss to Nigeria’s democratic struggle.
General Buhari recalled the role of M D Yusuf in Nigeria’s democratic struggle during the military politics of self-succession, which brought to the fore his courage to speak even if he was standing alone.
According to Buhari, despite the constriction of the democratic space, the late M D Yusuf was the only politician who established his own political party to challenge a military self-succession agenda.
General Buhari recalled that only an indomitable democrat like the late M D Yusuf could have taken that personal risk.
He prayed to Allah to forgive Yusuf’s shortcomings and reward his good deeds with Aljannah (Paradise).
