Former two-time Senator from Katsina State, Kanti Bello, is dead.
Bello died in the early hours of Tuesday, in Abuja.
The lawmaker, who represented Daura Senatorial Zone between 2003-2007 and 2007-2011, was the pioneer Managing Director of Katsina Steel Rolling Mill.
Bello’s death was confirmed in a terse statement by the younger brother to former Katsina State Deputy Governor, Abdullahi Faskari.
“I am directed to inform everybody that we lost Senator Kanti Bello early hours of this mourning (Tuesday) at Abuja. Burial arrangement will be announced later,” he said.
Bello, a Chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC in Katsina state had recently claimed that he regretted inviting President Muhammadu Buhari into politics.
The former Senate Chief Whip explained that his regret was predicated on the fact that the past two years of Buhari’s government has been a “waste.”
