President Muhammed Buhari has described the late former governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha as a loss to the state and the Ijaw people at large.

“Former Governor Alamieyeseigha was well loved by his people,” President Buhari says. “This love was expressed in the way they supported him through his time in public office, and also in the way they stood by him after he left office, in good times as in bad.”
President Buhari sympathized with the family of the late governor, asking them to take the loss as God’s will.
