In a condolence message signed by Malam Garba Shehu, his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Buhari said that his thoughts and prayers were with the Amaechi family.

The message, which was made available to newsmen on Saturday in Abuja, quoted Buhari as praying God to give the people of Rivers the fortitude to bear the loss.

President Buhari urged the former Rivers governor to find strength in the notable legacies of his late brother.
