Buhari Breaks Silence, Speaks From London

President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung on the death of his wife, Mrs Briskila Dalung.

In a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja by Nneka Anibeze, the Special Assistant, Media to the minister, said the president commiserated with Dalung through the telephone from London.

The President prayed God to grant the soul of the departed eternal rest.

Buhari, who expressed shock at the death of Mrs Dalung which came at an unripe age, prayed that God would forgive her sins.

He also prayed to God to give the family she left behind the fortitude to bear the loss.

The President promised to support the Dalung family in their moment of grief.

Mrs Dalung is survived by her husband and five children.

She died after a brief illness on Jan. 29, in Jos.



  1. Believe it or not, time will clear ur conscience. I just wonder y ppl will wish their fellow human dead. Even if they are fooling u, am sure they cant fool u 4ever

  2. Meekail, I truly wonder why a man will wish his fellow man dead.
    Even if there was a recorded video chat many will say it was doctored. Rather than praying for God’s will to be done, we’re talking abominable things

  3. Pray for the head and those in authority over us, so says the Holy book and all will be well with all of us that they rule. A food for thought

  4. Why ppl didn’t believed is because, they’ve done it b4with Yaradua, where a muslin dt suppose to bury in same day of his death was buried after a month. Be patience till next wk Thursday or Friday. Shikena

    • @ Benson, every man has his life to live. Let Buhari live his, until it’s time to die. In addition, I think you may be distorting history by saying YarAdua was buried 1 month after his death, except of course, you can provide the proof of that. I perfectly agree with Meekail and Lewis: This is a very simple issue as far as I cld see: the President took 10 days leave, with a specific date to return. The only cause for any discussion is if he fails to return to work on the proposed date. Until then, can we all respect his wish and privacy please.

  5. let’s keep praying for our leaders and pray for the grace of God upon our nation. wishing him dead will not solve any issue. God is watching

  6. This is someone’s father, husband, son, and a native of a place. Very unfair to think someone is dead. The normal thing is to wish him well and pray he recovers. Do u wish your father dead when he goes to the clinic? Not fair at all
