President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over the death of two persons as a result of overcrowding at his presidential campaign held in Jalingo, Taraba State.
He said he wished that they could be alive to witness what good governance would usher in if re-elected.
“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….
“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.
While appreciating the massive support he has been receiving all over the country, President Buhari called for restraint on the part of his supporters to avoid such tragic incidences, and improved crowd management at rally grounds.
He commiserated with the families of the victims of the Jalingo rally and the APC family.
He prayed that Almighty God would grant peace to the souls of the departed and speedy recovery to the injured.
