Buhari mourns ex-labour minister, Musa Gwadabe
President Muhammadu Buhari has joined the government and people of Kano State, family and the All Progressives Congress (APC) political family in mourning the death of former Labour Minister, Alhaji Musa Gwadabe.
The president, in a condolence message by his media aide, Malam Garba Shehu, on Wednesday in Abuja, described the deceased as a “colossal figure in Kano politics.”
According to him, the demise of Gwadabe has deprived the nation of one of its most remarkable political leaders.
“The late Musa Gwadabe was a complete gentleman. He was a smooth political operator and a very reliable ally with an unmatched record of support, leading to the emergence of the current APC administration and the incoming one.
‘‘I will not forget his tireless efforts to keep the party afloat during difficult times.
“That he died a few weeks ahead of the inauguration of the Tinubu/Shettima administration that he laboured so hard to bring about is one of the ironies of life. May Allah repose his soul,” he said.
