“The President joins them in mourning Hamman Misau who patriotically served his nation, state and community throughout his 34 years of distinguished service in the Nigeria Police Force and even in retirement, continued to be actively engaged with efforts to move the nation forward as shown by his participation in the National Conference.

“As he is laid to rest in his home state today, President Jonathan urges all delegates to the National Conference to resolve to honour his memory by rededicating themselves to working conscientiously towards further strengthening national unity, and promoting peace, security, political stability and faster development in the country.
