The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said it was shocked by the news of the death of the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Ghali Umar N’Abba described the sad event as another huge national loss.
In a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, said Rt. Hon. N’Abba was a courageous and visionary politician, forthright legislator, cultured democrat and resourceful grassroot politician who believed in and fought for the democracy tenets of separation of powers and independence of the legislature; freedom of citizens, equity, social justice and played key roles in ensuring the stability and growth of our nation.
The PDP recalls how Rt. Hon. N’Abba as Speaker led other democrats in the House of Representatives to chart the framework for the rebuilding of the legislative arm after a long Military Rule.
Despite the challenges he was resolute in entrenching democratic practice and insisted on strict adherence to Rule of Law and transparency in governance with effective legislative oversight of government Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs).
Rt. Hon. N’Abba remained committed to the nation especially in playing pivotal roles towards the deepening of democracy and salvaging the country from the stranglehold of oppressive forces.
The PDP commiserates with the N’Abba family the National Assembly and the Government and people of Kano State.
The Party prays to the Almighty Allah to console the family and grant his soul Al-jannah Fiddausi
