The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has mourned the death of Alhaji Musa Sale-Kwankwaso, the father of former governor of the state, Rabiu Kwankwaso.
Ganduje expressed sadness over the death of Sale-Kwankwaso.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Abba Anwar, on Friday, Ganduje described his death as a great loss to both his family and state.
NigerianEye had earlier reported that Sale-Kwankwaso died in the early hours of Friday at the age of 93.
However, Ganduje said: “When we received the information, apart from being shocked and jittery about it, we all felt that a great father has passed away. The feeling of this shockingly striking death will remain with us forever.
“Our great father was indeed a guide and an embodiment of patience, courage, humility, and a complete human being of endearing character and exemplary leadership.
“It is with a deep sense of grief and un-imagined feeling and on behalf of the government and people of Kano State, that we are sending our condolence message to the former governor of the state, Sen. Rabi’u Musa-Kwankwaso.
“What remains for us now, is to pray for Allah’s forgiveness and blessings on the soul of our dear father and seek Allah’s guidance to give us all the courage to bear this great loss.”
