The Jigawa State Governor, Mohammed Badaru Abubakar has reacted to the death of Jigawa South West All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial candidate, Tijjani Ibrahim Gaya.
This was contained in a press statement signed by Commissioner of Special Duties, Auwal D. Sankara (FICA) issued to DAILY POST.
He said the death of Gaya has come with a serious shock to the people of Jigawa State.
Governor Badaru described Ibrahim Gaya as a man of honour, a great leader, and a role model to the younger generation, who has sacrificed his whole life to serve the common man.
“Every soul must taste death. Our prayer is always to have a good ending and no doubt our brother has ended in a good after battling a protracted illness.” Badaru stated.
The Governor, however, prayed to Allah subhanahu wata’ala to grant the deceased al-Jannatul Firdausi and give his family and people of the state the fortitude to bear the loss.
The Governor had earlier paid a visit to Honorable Tijjani Ibrahim Gaya where he was hospitalized in Abuja before he was flown to China for more treatment.
DAILY POST reported that Gaya died after suffering from a lung infection.
