Ghali Na’Abba: Nigeria has lost a rare gem, a leader like no other – Dogara

Story from Ahmad SAKA, Bauchi

Former Speaker of the House of Representative, Yakubu Dogara, has commiserated with the immediate family and Kano State Government over the loss of former Speaker Ghali Umar Na’abba.

A statement signed by the former Speaker and issued to journalists by Dogara’s media aide Turaki Hassan Adamu said, “With a heavy heart but total submission to the will of God, I pay this tribute to an icon, an advocate of transparency, champion of social justice and rule of law who laid a solid foundation for the independence of the legislature in the Fourth Republic, Rt. Honourable Ghali Umar Na’abba, CFR.”

Dogara said, “Rt. Honourable Na’abba was a principled man, a patriot and leader par excellence. The 4th Assembly, under his able leadership, served as a bulwark for the advancement and defence of freedom, liberty, and strict adherence to democratic tenets.”

“He was a repository of knowledge who was always willing to share from his fountain of wisdom whenever the legislature ran into murky waters and needed clarity to proceed.”

“His death is a personal loss to me as he was a big brother and mentor who was always there to offer his wise counsel to me whenever the need arose.”

“I commiserate with his immediate family, the government/people of Kano State, and Nigerians, and pray May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace,” the statement said.
