The President, who also commiserated with the government and people of Edo State and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), described the late Anenih as a front-line figure in the annals of the country’s political history.
Buhari affirmed that across the political spectrum of Nigeria, Anenih was known for his strong views on issues pertaining to the unity and stability of the nation.
He prayed for the repose of his soul and also asked that God grants the family the fortitude to bear the loss.
