He added that the deceased definitely lived a fulfilled life to the praise of the Almighty Allah.
His words, “Though we grieve that the Maijidadi Kano left at a time his prayers and wise counsel are needed the most, we are however consoled that he lived a fulfilled life to the praise of the Almighty Allah and bequeathed to the nation, a gift of a patriot in Senator Kwankwaso, who has distinguished himself with an exceptional commitment to the stability, peace and development of our dear nation.”
“Our party commiserates with Senator Kwankwaso, the entire Kwankwaso family as well as the people of Kano state and prays God to comfort them and grant them the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.”
