Former Military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (rtd.), and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, on Sunday night counted among early mourners of former Governor of Niger State, Engineer Abdulkadir Abdullahi Kure.
“The sudden death of former Governor of Niger State, Engineer, Abdulkadir Abdullahi Kure, this afternoon in Germany comes to me in a great shock but as a believer, ‘All souls must taste dead’ sooner or later,” said Babangida in a statement by his Media Office.
He prayed for Allah mercy and forgiveness for the late Abdulkadir Kure and urged the family, people of Niger State and Nigeria at large to take heart and pray for him in his journey to the great beyond.
On his part, Dogara in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media & Public Affairs, Turaki Hassan, described the former governor’s death is a big loss.
Dogara described the late politician as a progressive and seasoned technocrat whose experience and wisdom would be missed.
He also extended his condolence to Kure’s immediate family and prayed God to grant them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
