Death of Zazzau Emir: Senator Kwari consoles constituents
…says he’ll be dearly missed, condoles with Elrufai
Senator representing Kaduna North Senatorial District, Sen. Suleiman Abdu has consoled the people of Zazzau Emirate and condoled Governor Nasir Elrufai of Kaduna State, over the demise of late monarch Alhaji Shehu Idris.
The lawmaker described the death of the Emir of Zazzau, Dr Shehu Idris as one of the saddest developments recorded by the country, describing the monarch as a highly-cultured leader who was urbane and cosmopolitan in the handling of issues.
The lawmaker noted that the late emir’s commitment to peace exemplified by his patriotic disposition to national issues was a factor that distinguished him.
Sen. Kwari, who commiserated with the royal family, and the Kaduna State government led by Governor Nasir Elrufai and the entire members of Zazzau emirate, stated that “the late emir will be dearly missed.”
The parliamentarian, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Anti-Corruption and Financial Crimes, lamented that “the Emir’s death has come at “a very crucial moment in Nigeria’s national experience, a time when the nation is working with dignified lovers of peace to institute harmony among various groups”.
He explained that the death of the emir was particularly sad as his contribution to peace in northern Nigeria and the country would be dearly missed, as the monarch had been playing pivotal roles in the promotion of peace and tranquility for over four decades.
The Senator prayed for the repose of his soul, and called on Nigerians to imbibe in themselves, the virtues and ideologies of peace and harmony for which the late emir was known.
Senator Kwari then called on the Federal Government to consider immortalizing the late emir by naming a national edifice in his honour.
