President Bola Tinubu has described late former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Umar Na’abba as a man who struggled to defend the functionality and role of the legislature while in government.
He also described him as a disciplined and resolute politician while alive.
The Nigerian President said this while sympathizing with the Na’Abba family, the government, and the people of Kano State over the passing of Na’Abba.
The late Na’Abba was Speaker of the House Representatives following the return of democracy in Nigeria from 1999 to 2003, succeeding Salisu Buhari.
President Tinubu through a condolence message by his media aide, Ajuri Ngelale expressed profound grief at the loss, recalling the contributions of the late ex-lawmaker to nation-building through legislation, advocacy, and policy.
The President prayed for the repose of the soul of the departed and comfort for those who mourn this painful loss.
