The Governor further said that the death of the deceased is a great lesson to leaders at all levels to fear Allah in discharging their responsibilities as death can occur at any time.

Governor Matawalle described late Ibrahim Khaleel as a freedom fighter and a dogged activist who spent most of his lifetime in the struggle for the welfare of workers and that his contributions will remain indelible in the minds of many labour leaders, especially his simplicity, hard work, honesty and humility to all.

His death, according to the governor is a monumental loss to the country, labour unions and Kano State government saying that the vacuum his death created will be very difficult to fill.

Matawalle extended his heartfelt condolences to the Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Kano State Government and the deceased immediate family for the great loss and prayed for Almighty Allah to reward his soul with Jannatul Firdaus and give them the fortitude to bear the loss.
