President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 sent his condolence to the people of Zambia following the death of President Michael Sata.

In a press statement signed by the President’s special adviser on media and publicity, Reuben Abati, President Jonathan expresses his sympathy for the people of Zambia, on behalf of the government of Nigeria and its people, as they mourn President Sata, who he describes as “their leader, patriarch, nationalist and patriot” who will be remembered in history for his stance against neocolonialism and other forms of imperialism in Zambia and Africa as a whole.

The President added that as the people of Zambia prepare to lay President Sata to rest, he urges them to conduct themselves in an orderly, constitutional and peaceful manner as they go about the task of selecting a new president.

He concluded by praying to God to comfort Zambians, praying that a worthy successor is selected to keep the country united and ensure it keeps making progress or the people’s benefit.
