The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Defence, Sen. Aliyu Wamakko, has described the Second Republic Governor of old Kaduna State, the late Alhaji Balarabe Musa, as a dogged and rare democrat.
Wamakko, in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Bashir Mani, said that Musa’s demise had left a wide vacuum too difficult to fill in the Nigerian political sphere.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the former governor died in the early hours of Wednesday at the age of 84.
Wamakko, who also described Musa as a core patriot and nationalist, said that he recorded tremendous achievements while he was the governor of the old Kaduna State between October 1979 and June 1981.
According to him, Musa’s demise is a colossal loss, not only to his immediate family and Kaduna State but also, to the country in general.
The for governor of Sokoto State prayed Allah to grant the deceased aljannat firdaus and his family, people and government of Kaduna State the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
