President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has expressed condolences to the government and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria following the tragic death of Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Ibrahim Attahiru.
“I express the deep condolences of the Gov’t and people of Ghana, and of myself personally, to President Buhari and the Gov’t and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the shocking, tragic deaths of Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, other senior Nigerian military officers, in Saturday’s plane crash. Our hearts go out to their families, and may their souls rest in perfect peace,” President Akufo-Addo tweeted.
