The President urges members of his family and all who mourn Femi Robinson to honour his memory by constantly upholding the values of inter-ethnic harmony, education, civility and proficiency, which he passionately promoted through successful careers as an actor and broadcaster.

President Jonathan prays that God Almighty will comfort all who mourn him and grant his soul eternal rest.
