The Kwara State House of Assembly on Wednesday suspended sitting in honour of the Chief Administrative Officer /Chief Legislative Officer, Hajia Mariam Toyin Saliu, who died at the Ilorin General Hospital on Tuesday.

The Speaker, Dr.Ali Ahmad, who presided over the Wednesday’s sitting, announced the demise of the Chief Legislative Officer and directed members to observe a minute silence for the repose of her soul.

Dr. Ahmad, who was visibly disturbed, disclosed that the House had resolved to adjourn sitting till the next legislative day, as a mark of respect for the deceased.

He described Hajia Mariam Toyin Soliu as a honest, committed and thorough bred legislative officer, whose service would be sorely missed by the legislature.

The Speaker then prayed Allah to grant the family of the deceased the fortitude to bear the loss and the departed soul Al- Janat Fridouz.

The House equally observed a minute silence in honour of the father of the immediate past Deputy Speaker of the House, Prof Mohammed Yisa Gana, who passed on a few days ago.
