In his two separate letters of commiseration to the family and the Executive Governor of Yobe State, Hon.

In a statement issued Saturday by Samuel Emmanuel Nanle
Director, Press & Public Affairs, Plateau state said the over eight decades of the life of the late Mallam bears evidence of more than half a century of his immense contributions to nation building, and for this he would be greatly missed beyond the geographical boundaries of Nigeria.
The Governor on behalf of his family, the Government and good people of Plateau State, extends sincere condolences to the bereaved family of the deceased and the good people of Yobe State and further prayed to Allah (SWT) to give the family the fortitude to bear the loss and grant the late Mallam whom he further described as an elder statesman, astute politician, disciplined bureaucrat and experienced technocrat, “aljannatu firdaus”.
