Jonathan mourns MD Yusuf
President Jonathan also commiserated with Alhaji Yusuf’s family as well as the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) on the demise of the respected leader of the cultural and political association.
In a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati, President Jonathan 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.
The President expressed the believe that MD Yusuf, as he was fondly called by his friends and associates, would long be remembered for his outstanding political courage and exemplary determination during Nigeria’s transition to democracy after years of military rule.
He 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.
